CEMEX UK is one of only 22 companies out of 4915 registered members to achieve the Gold FORS standard nationwide. FORS is the Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme, a voluntary certification scheme, run by Transport for London.
Just over a year ago the company received the Gold standard for its London operations which guaranteed standards in management, vehicles, drivers and operations based upon lawfulness, safety, efficiency and environmental protection.
The nationwide Gold standard is more demanding and required CEMEX to provide evidence for all its operations covering over 400 vehicles operating throughout the country.
Craig Williamson, Logistics Director CEMEX UK comments “Our vehicles cover over 15 million miles per annum and we aim to do everything we can to reduce the risk of accidents for the benefit of everyone on the roads. Reaching the standards for the Gold level requires that our vehicles and drivers are operating to the highest standard and helping to improve road safety everywhere we operate.”
