FORS has announced that it will reduce its annual subscription fee for new and existing members from March 1 to help fleet operators during the pandemic.
Throughout the coronavirus outbreak, FORS has helped members maintain their focus on best practice, including the provision of free training courses for drivers and fleet managers, and a move to remote auditing.
FORS has now frozen annual fees for operators for five consecutive years. Fee reductions will apply to all existing members renewing their membership, and to anyone registering, with revised costs calculated according to fleet size.
“We have worked hard to maintain our service levels during the health crisis and we have strived to deliver some financial respite that’s fair to all members based on their fleet size and regardless of whether they are new to the scheme or existing members,” said FORS director, John Hix (pictured).
“2020 was extremely tough for many in the transport sector and only now are we seeing genuine signs that the movement of goods by road could return to normal levels in the second half of 2021.”
During the UK’s coronavirus pandemic, FORS has maintained its commitment to members, moving all of its FORS Professional training portfolio and other services – including audits – to online platforms.
FORS is providing further support running free courses for the mandatory driver training at Silver (Safe Urban Driving/Van Smart) and Gold (LoCITY Driving).
In addition, FORS launched two new courses, Time Smart and Managing Abnormal Indivisible Loads, to help managers with the day-to-day running of their operation, and both of these are also offered free-of charge to FORS members.
