The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a voluntary accreditation scheme for transport businesses which aims to raise the level of quality in operations. It recognises teams who are achieving exemplary levels of best practice in safety, efficiency and environmental protection.

Gold accreditation is only awarded to exceptional operators who have met exacting targets and is the top level of accreditation available. It enables the Ward team to promote its exemplary practice to customers, stakeholders and its supply chain partners.

Min Bawa, Senior Transport Manager at Ward, said:

“This is an incredible achievement and we are so proud of our team for being awarded FORS Gold status. We’re one of only a few recycling companies that hold the ISO 9001, 14001 and 18001 quality standards as well as retaining Investors in People accreditation and this additional recognition of best practice cements our commitment to quality even further.”

To achieve the accreditation the metal and waste management specialist had to evidence best practice across several areas including driver wellbeing, fuel efficiency, noise reduction and modal shift.

Min added:

“Our fleet is under constant review. As part of our sustainability road map to 2030 we are committed to having a fleet that is 100% Euro 6 specification. By replacing older vehicles when the time comes and continually investing in the latest technology, we aim to reduce emissions, improve fuel efficiency and equipment safety, as well as supporting our drivers’ wellbeing with training and wider benefits.”

Operations Director, Donald Ward added:

“We want people to know that when they choose Ward as their supplier they are guaranteed a low carbon footprint, high standards of sustainability, safety and great level of service. FORS Gold is recognition that we consistently achieve that.”
