Published: 25 September, 2014
Speedy claims to have become the first tool and equipment hire company in the UK to have its entire national depot portfolio accredited ‘silver’ under the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS).
Mark Rogerson, MBE, chief executive officer at Speedy, said: “To be recognised as the first tool and equipment hire company in the UK to have its entire national depot portfolio accredited under FORS silver is testament to the Speedy transport team and they should be truly proud of their success.
“We share a responsibility to create a safe and healthy work environment which is why we engage with our transport and logistics employees on company initiatives. This forms an integral part of improving our logistical processes, as our employees are well placed to identify any problems as well as potential solutions.
“Our logistic management team continually review the way our fleet operates and constantly look at process improvements, while Speedy’s company focus on safety also ensures that this remains central to our operation.”
Speedy’s transport team has achieved a further four accolades for its fleet; on 18 September it was a double win for the team, after being awarded ‘Safe Van Fleet of the Year’ and ‘Van Fleet of the Year’ at the Fleet Van Awards 2014. The team also recently won the ‘Safe Vehicles Award’ at the Brake Fleet Safety Awards 2014, as well as the ‘Safest Fleet of the Year’ at the Fleet News Awards 2014.
