Tardis presented with FORS Bronze award
What is FORS?
Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is an industry-led membership scheme that will change and transform freight delivery in London whether it be a van or a lorry.
The scheme is free and open to any company operating a fleet of vans or lorries in the capital. It will help Tardis Environmental meet the ever increasing demands of our customers and their contractual obligations whilst helping us drive down costs.
FORS offer practical advice and guidance that can reduce fuel consumption and fines such as penalty charge notices.
FORS will help us become even safer, more environmentally focused and better equipped to deal with the trials of driving in London such as CO2 emissions and management of collisions should they occur. Legal compliance is another benefit of membership and we'll be able to demonstrate more fully our commitment to health and safety, managing work-related road risk and improving efficiency.
