FORS is reducing its annual subscription fee for new and existing members from 1 March, providing further support for fleet operators during the pandemic.

FORS has already helped members throughout the coronavirus outbreak, including providing free training courses, switching to remote auditing, and launching two new courses

The revised fees will apply to all existing members renewing their membership, and to anyone registering with FORS, from 1 March 2021, and are calculated according to fleet size.

The voluntary accreditation scheme for fleet operators has already helped members throughout the coronavirus outbreak, including providing free training courses for drivers and fleet managers, switching to remote auditing, and launching two new courses: Time Smart and Managing Abnormal Indivisible Loads.

FORS has also frozen annual fees for operators for the last five years running.

“We have worked hard to maintain our service levels during the health crisis,” said FORS director John Hix, “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.”

He added: “Our members already know that FORS best practice can deliver real operational savings, and I urge all operators to maintain their focus on safety and efficiency.”
