Well Done To Our Valuemix Colleagues

Our Valuemix business operating in Greater Manchester has just achieved FORS Bronze standard.  The Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme (FORS) ensures that those accredited operate to the highest standards in managing road risk, reducing environmental impact and enhancing operational efficiency.

Valuemix, our mobile volumetric service, was started 2 years ago with just one vehicle, today there are four vehicles operating in a highly competitive market.

Currently there is a lot of debate in the Houses of Parliament about whether volumetric vehicles are heavy goods vehicles or plant.  If HGVs, there are a lot more restrictions around driving hours, load capacity etc.  Many of the competitors choose to call their vehicles ‘plant’ giving them the opportunity to maximise the hours of operation and lots more.

FORS highlights to customers how seriously we take health and safety and operate to the highest standards.
