As a leading transport and logistics company in London and the South East, we’re proud to be recognised in the FORS scheme, achieving the FORS Gold accreditation as a result of our dedication to outstanding customer service and solutions.
But if you are considering whether you want your business to be part of the scheme, you may be wondering what the benefits are.
FORS highlights the very best in the business, however it’s not a straight forward process to become accredited – if it was then everyone would hold the award! There are strict criteria which businesses have to meet in order to achieve a FORS Bronze, Silver or Gold accreditation, with each level denoting particular standards which are met and exceeded.
So with this in mind, what are the benefits to achieving the FORS Gold standard?
Increased and improved standards
Whether you achieve FORS Gold or FORS Silver, the accreditation helps to increase and improve standards within your business across multiple different disciplines. This includes health and safety and internal operations. Ultimately, this can help give your business a boost and help ensure that you are operating as effectively and efficiently as possible.
Stand out from your competitors
What better way to showcase your commitment to high standards than with the FORS Gold accreditation? FORS Gold is the highest award that you can achieve through the FORS scheme, and as a result there are a limited number of companies in the UK that hold it. Consequently, it can help push your business and your services into the spotlight, enabling you to stand head and shoulders above your competitors.
Better your road safety standards
As part of the FORS Gold accreditation, businesses within the transport and logistics sector have to meet specific road safety standards. This helps improve the safety for your team members as well as other road users.
Improve your business’ performance
Meeting the specific criteria outlined for the FORS Gold assessment means that your business’ performance is likely to improve. Whether it’s from a health & safety aspect, or an employee training point of view, the FORS scheme means that you can ensure your business is performing with optimal output at all times.
Attractive to potential clients
Holding the FORS Gold standard is a massive tick for many clients who are looking to procure suppliers for projects and jobs. It is likely that by holding the FORS Gold standard, your services will appear ten times more attractive to potential clients.
If you’re looking to work with a business which takes pride in providing outstanding solutions, seeking to partner with a FORS Gold accredited company, such as Hammond Transport, could be the right option for you.
