FORS validation for VKVP

Haulier demonstrates best practice in safety, efficiency & environmental protection


Logistics specialist, VKVP Haulage, has been successful in gaining the bronze level of the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS).

FORS is a voluntary accreditation scheme for fleet operators which aims to raise the level of quality within fleet operations and to establish which operators are achieving exemplary levels of best practice in safety, efficiency, and environmental protection.

The Felixstowe-based haulier successfully underwent a three-month independent assessment of its operations, demonstrating its effective systems, policies, and procedures and met standards in four areas: drivers & driver management, vehicle & fleet management, transport operations and performance management.

VKVP Haulage fleet manager, Tony Willats, elaborates: “Throughout the FORS assessment, we were able to demonstrate the robustness of our management, operations and processes and reinforce our safety and security procedures.”

Commenting on the accreditation, Mark Bennett, VKVP Haulage operations director, says: “This is great news for our company, and our FORS status publicly reinforces our commitment to efficient and effective processes across our operations. It also gives our clients greater reassurance and forms part of our overall growth strategy.”
