Clarks of Amersham achieves FORS accreditation

May 02, 2017
Clarks of Amersham has announced that it has attained, at the first time of trying, Bronze Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme accreditation (FORS).

FORS is a voluntary accreditation scheme that promotes best practice for commercial operators across the UK. This includes safe working, driver awareness, and proof of continual improvement. FORS has 4,250 accredited members operating over 140,000 vehicles.   

The FORS Standard represents a quality and performance benchmark and recognises fleet operations that comply with the requirements of Transport for London’s operating standard.   

Clarks of Amersham is a family run business that has supplied removals and storage services for nearly 25 years to the domestic and commercial markets.  Its growth has been impressive, starting as a husband and wife team with only one van, it now has 18 vehicles, 50 staff and four warehouses.  

The company recently successfully pitched for a new piece of business which included transportation in and around London and having the FORS accreditation became a part of that contractual agreement.    

Michael Clark, Managing Director said, “We know our customers want their service provider to be safer and greener. This award gives positive proof of best practice and that our systems are up to scratch. To maintain it we will continue to be reviewed annually and plan to move up the accreditations with Silver firmly in our sights for next year. I am very proud of what we as a team have achieved, including improving our driver training and vehicle safety.”
