FORS For All

Following a systems audit by the governing body CEMEX Readymix have now received the green light to extend the roll out of the Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme (FORS) to all remaining IHCs in the UK Readymix business. 

FORS is an accreditation scheme for fleet operators encompassing all aspects of safety, efficiency, and environmental protection by encouraging and training fleet operators to measure, monitor and improve performance. It is a really effective scheme for promoting best practice and focusing drivers and their vehicles on the safety of vulnerable road users. Many of our customers are now requesting deliveries on FORS accredited vehicles and this will now allow us to position CEMEX at the front of the queue.

CEMEX began rolling out the FORS scheme in London in 2015 and then opening up to major conurbations around the UK with approximately 52% of the UK fleet having achieved FORS Accreditation so far. Now we have received the additional approval for all the remaining IHCs in the UK we can really push on and demonstrate to our customers that our IHC fleet is committed to being the best!

If you have any questions on the FORS scheme or require more information please feel free to contact Daniel Bateman.
