The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme has named Traffilog UK as a FORS associate supplier.
Traffilog UK uses in-vehicle connectivity to allow transport managers to monitor and analyse key data, providing actionable insights to improve fleet operations.
Reviewing both vehicle and driver performance, the technology is used to assist with improvements in safety and efficiency, and can be used to educate drivers on best practice.
Traffilog UK said it is a perfect fit as its "in-cab technology and telematics systems are perfectly placed to help operators meet the requirements of the FORS standard".
For example, the user-interface unit used to communicate with the driver and measure key variables during a journey can be detached from the inside of the cab and used to detail the driver walk around check, a key part of the FORS standard.
Drivers can submit reports during their walk around, using the digitalised system which allows engineers to respond and comment using the Traffilog UK system as an audit record.
Companies wishing to become FORS accredited need to demonstrate that they are consistently meeting the FORS Standard, and are making improvements where possible to operations in order to progress through the accreditation levels. Traffilog’s platform uses connectivity to provide the insights and records needed to encourage change.
Paul Wilkes, FORS business services manager, said “We are delighted that Traffilog UK has joined FORS as an associate, providing crucial telematics solutions for our current and prospective members.”
Ben Copitch, business development director at Traffilog UK, added: “FORS is encouraging operators to engage with the underlying issues affecting fleet performance.
"By delivering crucial data and insights to fleet operators we hope to provide them with the tools to improve their day-to-day performance and make long term changes which not only help their fleets but also improve conditions for other road users and the environment.”
