S. Porretta and Sons have been FORS Gold accredited (Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme) for six years and we have been Bronze accredited for ten years.
What is FORS and why does it matter?
The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a de facto industry standard and a voluntary accreditation scheme for fleet operators which aims to raise the level of quality within fleet operations, and to demonstrate which operators are achieving exemplary levels of best practice in safety, efficiency, and environmental protection.
The FORS site states that FORS Operators are safer, smarter and greener and we strive to achieve this. We are pleased to be at the highest level of FORS Gold.
FORS is intrinsically aligned with how we thought about working so the FORS Gold certification has been a natural progression. It brings us the benefit of a recognised framework and annual audits to optimise our vehicle performance, to manage loads and everyday driving safely and to invest in our team in both the office and on the road. We continually invest in our people and our fleet as we believe that quality is a commitment to ourselves and our customers and it is a great way of working.
