Smith Brothers has achieved the silver Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) accreditation for the fourth year running since upgrading from bronze.
SBS has held the accreditation for seven years. The award is granted to its wide fleet of vehicles and all the vehicles hold the status, meaning that when someone places a delivery from one of its branches located across England and Wales, the company meet the high standards set by the scheme.
Smith Brothers fleet is constantly increasing, as nine vehicles have been added in just the last year. This takes the total number of vehicles to 84 that service the 15-depot network.
This award has the greatest impact on SBS's staff as they must gain the required knowledge and skills to meet standards, which are focused around improving road safety, reducing the risk of collisions and vulnerable road users.
The scheme is a voluntary accreditation for vehicle fleets such as buses, coaches, vans and trucks. The objectives aren’t just to improve vehicle safety; focus is also given to vehicle efficiency along with environmental protection. The award helps demonstrate to the companies customers and supply chain its commitment to exceeding the industry standard regarding the SBS vehicle fleet.
