Ainscough Crane Hire has achieved a silver accreditation in the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS).
FORS is an industry-led accreditation scheme that aims to promote road freight as a safe and sustainable mode of transportation as well as providing education and development options for operators working in the sector.
With 360 degree cameras recording systems in all of Ainscough’s HGV vehicles, data regarding road safety is stored on the vehicle’s hard drive unit and can be accessed remotely for efficiency.
Ainscough used specialist transport team to support its application with the 8 sections including questions on vehicle carbon output, vehicle maintenance, vehicle performance, compliance and training.
Ainscough transport manager, Jimmy Dixon, believes the FORS silver accreditation further cements Ainscough’s reputation for being the UK’s leading lifting solutions company: “We are very pleased to achieve FORS silver standard. This accreditation reinforces our standing as a business which gets the very best out of our HGV commercial fleet, operating with consideration, care and mindfulness of the environment.
“Marks of assurance like this further prove our dedication to quality service delivery and training. Furthermore, as soon as we submitted our application we were accredited, which evidences how efficient our fleet is and how productive our team have been throughout this process.”
