The latest FORS (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) Going for Bronze workshop took place in London yesterday and was sponsored by Fuel Card Services. We were in attendance and here Rachel Pearson reports on a productive day:
Really good start to 2017 and our ongoing relationship with FORS and its members yesterday at the FORS Going for Bronze workshop, which we were delighted to sponsor in London – the new workshop format, worked really well.
There was a great turnout on the day and it seems there are many more companies becoming FORS practitioners / progressing to Bronze standard and above, which is really positive.
Overall the discussion topics were relevant and at times a little controversial! However it is always great to have such a wealth of transport knowledge and expertise in one room.
I was delighted to catch up with a contact from a business, who is a Silver FORS member, that I have been talking to for a while. We’ve been discussing how I could help them to reduce their fuel bills and the face to face contact really broke the ice. The workshop enabled me to meet their Head of Transport and we’re hoping to review his fuel spend and reduce his costs with a FORS fuel card by the end of next week.
I was also able to sit with the MD of a company spending £25k a month on fuel who told me that he wasn’t too happy with his current fuel card supplier and would like to see what we can offer. This business joined FORS for contractual reasons but now also enjoys all the additional member benefits he has available!
The next FORS workshop is on the 8th February 2017 and I am really looking forward to meeting the next group of new FORS practitioners & members!
