We are excited to announce that our South Midlands depot has been awarded the coveted Silver standard from the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS).
This comes just a few months after our acquisition of SM Sweepers’ assets and business, this reflects all the hard work our staff have put in to achieving the standard.
The FORS Silver standard builds on the Bronze standard through various criteria such as increased vehicle safety features, the Safe Urban Driver Scheme (SUDS) on cycle training and fuel usage monitoring.
South Midlands is the first of our national network of service centres and depots to achieve the Silver standard from FORS. However, it is the first milestone in our rollout program, which will see all of our service centres and depots get to Silver standard and eventually aim for the peak Gold standard.
