In December 2016 we achieved the FORS Gold standard. FORS is a voluntary scheme that promotes best practice and encompasses all aspects of safety, efficiency, and environmental protection by encouraging and training fleet operators to measure, monitor and improve performance.
At the start of 2017, recognising the need of our customers we achieved ISO 9001:2015. ISO is a set of international standards that ensure products and services are safe, reliable and of good quality. For us, ISO is about ensuring we provide consistency to our customers across all processes and operations, certifying reliability and dependability.
