AFI receives best practice award
By Sarah Ann McCay22 July 2013
UK freight distribution organisation, The Freight Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS), has awarded bronze accreditation to AFI for good working practices in powered access equipment delivery and its service van fleets.
To gain the accreditation AFI had to demonstrate to FORS assessors that it has the systems, policies and procedures in place to meet its commitment to safety, reducing CO2 emissions, congestion, collisions and operator costs.
FORS is a membership scheme set up to establish industry benchmarks and acknowledge operational efficiency within the freight industry.
AFI’s fleet is fitted with a range of fuel-saving and emission-reducing devices, including sophisticated telemetry systems to monitor vehicle and driver performance. This helps to monitor driver behaviour, which in turn brings important safety, fuel efficiency and emission reduction benefits.
AFI operates a fleet of 100 delivery and service vehicles throughout, England, Scotland and Wales.
