Vision Techniques is helping London to become safer, greener and more efficient by joining a government initiative designed to improve standards of van and lorry companies.
Members of Transport for London's new scheme are helping to encourage further improvements in the freight industry.
The initiative, the 'Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS)', helps promote safe working practices, legal compliance and corporate social responsibility of vehicle operations in London.
Vision Techniques has become an associate member of FORS, demonstrating its commitment to vehicle safety and high standards in the freight industry.
In addition to promoting health and safety, the industry-led membership scheme helps educate drivers on fuel management and parking to save money and reduce their environmental impact.
FORS provides vital information to ensure health and safety procedures and standards meet industry best practice.
Michael Hanson, Managing Director of Vision Techniques, said: "By becoming a member of FORS, we aim to help drive up standards across the sector by monitoring and seeking to continuously improve the performance of freight activities."
To assist Vision Techniques in meeting this commitment, FORS provides access to support and materials and opportunities to demonstrate its support.
Membership of the scheme means Vision Techniques has access to a range of exclusive benefits, including safety, fuel and PCN advice, performance management, workshops, E-learning, driver licence checks and breakdown assistance.
Members of FORS are recognised as forward-thinking, high quality vehicle operators.
FORS is a voluntary certification scheme aimed at ensuring that fleet operators work lawfully and to best practice by meeting the FORS standard.
It provides a quality and performance benchmark for the freight industry and is part of the wider London Freight Plan.
