LV Shipping have recently undergone our first audit in order to begin our ascent of the Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme (FORS) accreditation ladder and we are pleased to announce that we have successfully achieved bronze status.
FORS sets the standards that all organisations involved in fleet transport should aspire to from a business, safety and environmental perspective, and to raise standards of driving, road use and compliance.
Bronze accreditation confirms that an operator employs good practices and complies with the requirements laid out by the FORS Standard. This includes demonstrating dedication to driver and vehicle safety, combined with improving operating practices through effective monitoring of fuel and tyre usage.
This achievement not only enhances our current HSQE management systems but also makes commercial sense as many of our clients and partners require their suppliers to demonstrate compliance with the requirements of this standard.
