People inspecting VGC vans

We are pleased that FORS has re-accredited our operations.

FORS is the Transport for London Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme, a voluntary scheme that assesses all aspects of safety, fuel efficiency, economical operations and vehicle emissions. FORS helps to improve performance in each of these areas. Our accreditation gives independent confirmation that our operations, managed by VGC Cole Hire, are run safely, efficiently and in an environmentally sound manner.

FORS certificateThe annual re-approval audit checks good practice in our management systems and working practices. For example, it certifies that risk assessments are in place which provide for safe systems of work in relation to working safely in and around vehicles.

This pdf on the FORS website sets out the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme standards.

VGC’s fleet is on average less than 12 months old, and last year the company took delivery of 43 new vans. All the new vans are five-star rated by Euro NCAP. They have excellent fuel economy and lower emissions. All VGC vehicles are fitted in-car-cleverness tracking systems to support drivers to drive safely with minimum fuel consumption.
