Fleets report operational savings and reduced emissions with FORS Fleet Management System

An increasing number of operators using FORS Fleet Management System (FMS) are demonstrating significant cost savings and reduced emissions across their fleet.

Since its launch in 2018, FORS Fleet Management System (FORS FMS) has risen in popularity among FORS members. There are now 226 fleets across the UK signed up to the system, and the recent wave of positive feedback suggests that it is being well received.

Commenting on the difference that FORS FMS has made to TJ Hammond Transport, Clive Morris, Fleet Compliance Manager, said, “Managing a fleet of vehicles and drivers can be challenging, no matter the fleet size. FORS FMS has made the general day-to-day management of our fleet easier. It provides complete transparency for fuel usage, driver defects and licence checks, and removes a lot of the paperwork typically involved in daily vehicle inspections and defect reporting.”

Echoing those positive sentiments, Mark Fussell, Service Manager at independently owned specialist contractor ADP Group, said, “I implemented FORS FMS on a colleague recommendation and it has really allowed me to streamline my system of work.

“The level of automation it allows has really impressed me, as well as the ease of generating checklists for specific equipment. The FORS accreditation of FleetCheck has given me confidence that the specific requirements are being met”.

FORS FMS is intuitive and simple to use, helping operators to gain and maintain FORS accreditation.

Nick Westmorland, Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme Manager at Kingston Landscape Group, was also full of praise for FORS FMS, commenting, “We use FORS FMS as an integral part of managing our fleet, making sure drivers comply with FORS Bronze and Silver accreditation. It stores everything that is required for good fleet management, including servicing history, MOT and Tax updates linked to the government website for the vehicles.

“FORS FMS provides a link to FORS to retrieve training, and the portal allows for input of any penalties and collisions. An alert system notifies users of any important events that are due to expire, so this makes it especially ideal.”

Anixter’s Craig Bradburne added, “The FORS Fleet Management System has totally transformed the way we manage our fleet. Having all the information to hand is making our fleet management more effective and efficient, and enabling us to continuously improve how we operate our vehicles.”

FORS FMS is a subscription-based service, available exclusively to FORS members in collaboration with FORS Affinity Partner, FleetCheck that draws on live data sources to consolidate fleet management data such as fuel cards, telematics and driver records. FORS members can also benefit from a trial period of up to three months, as well as free set-up – saving £10.00 per vehicle.
