Bishopsgate has been awarded FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) demonstrating that it meets a number of criteria necessary to deliver in London in terms of safety and environmental considerations.
The FORS standard represents a quality and performance benchmark and recognises fleet operations which comply with the requirements of Transport for London’s operating standard. It is based on legal compliance, safety, environmental protection and operational efficiency.
Commenting on the award, Tim Bloch, managing director said, “We have a responsibility to take a lead in operating safely and efficiently, over and above our legal obligations. This accreditation reaffirms our commitment to becoming safer, greener and more efficient. ”
FORS was developed by Transport for London, working with a range of industry stakeholders, including the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport, Department for Transport, Freight Transport Association, the Metropolitan Police, Skills for Logistics and VOSA.
