Aztek Logistics Ltd are extremely proud to announce that we have become the 25th General Haulage company to currently hold the Gold standard for Transport for London’s Freight Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS).
The Gold standard separates out operators that Transport for London believe are exceptional and are going the extra mile to raise their standards and performance. The FORS voluntary scheme sets its standards based upon lawfulness, safety, efficiency, and environmental protection. The standards cover all aspects of the distribution business including Management, Vehicles, Drivers and Operations.
Aztek’s progression from Bronze to Silver, then onto Gold, demonstrates our dedication to improving road safety and bettering our procedures and policies. Reaching the Gold standard positions Aztek as a high quality operator who takes good practice, compliance and safety extremely seriously.
Working with FORS has allowed Aztek to continually improve our growing fleet, evidenced in our heavy investment in vehicle safety systems such as cameras, nearside proximity sensors and audible alarms for all vehicles. Furthermore all of Aztek’s drivers have completed the Safe Urban Driving course in association with Transport for London.
Duncan Pannell, Operations Manager for Aztek, explains how important FORS is to the company.
“We came across FORS when tendering for work across London. When we looked at the requirements and benefits of joining the scheme we saw that they fitted in perfectly with our ethos of improving safety whilst complementing our drive to improve fuel efficiency and reduce our environmental impact. Since embarking on the accreditation process, we have reduced our Parking Fines and Charges by 33% and improved our MPG and idling across the Fleet”.
