The scheme now boasts 87 Gold accredited companies. Over 21,700 vehicles are now accredited with the FORS Gold standard; ensuring that professional standards throughout the logistics sector are maintained and encouraged nationwide.

This demonstrates the industry’s commitment to raising standards. We will work with current and new organisations to ensure that more operators graduate through the scheme and that the benefits  are experienced nationwide.’

FORS was established as a nationwide scheme in February, giving operators throughout the UK the opportunity to show their commitment to professional standards. The uptake since the scheme became self-funded has been remarkable, demonstrating both the popularity of FORS and the demand for a single professional standard nationwide.
