TfL has signed a new contract with Sopra Steria to run the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS), which works to make vehicle fleets across the UK safer and greener. Although predominately for freight operators, the scheme is also open to those who operate fleets of coaches and buses too.
The new contract will begin in January 2022 and will last for five years, with Sopra Steria taking over from the current administrators AECOM.
FORS, which was created by TfL in 2008, is an accreditation scheme recognising freight and fleet safety and environmental standards.
The voluntary scheme audits fleet operators and awards bronze, silver and gold accreditations by asking them to demonstrate exceptional levels of best practice in safety and efficiency.
Further information about FORS can be found on their website.
