Business group Logistics UK has announced its status as a FORS Audit Provider, with audits to start this month.
David Wells, Chief Executive at Logistics UK, comments: “Following a consultation with members, and having cleared the necessary quality checks, we are delighted to have been appointed as an approved auditor for the FORS scheme and look forward to adding value via our extensive experience in auditing and compliance.
“Standing up for safe and efficient logistics is at the heart of everything we do at Logistics UK, and we are pleased to be assisting this accreditation scheme that promotes those values.
“However, the work we carry out for FORS will remain separate to the work that we undertake via our policy team for members, and we will continue to support our members in monitoring and challenging the FORS scheme where necessary.”
Speaking of the new collaboration with Logistics UK, FORS Concession Director, Ian Henderson said: “We are always delighted to be able to add to our portfolio of audit providers. Giving our accredited operators the best geographical reach and choice of professional audit services is, of course, a key part of the FORS mandate.
“Logistics UK is particularly well known throughout the industry, and the company has a long history of providing insightful guidance and professional audit services throughout the transport sector.”
