The Tyne and Wear Freight Partnership is pressing ahead with its successful Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS).  47 companies, operating over 3,000 vehicles in total, are now registered with the scheme.

At a workshop on 5th September, the first three FORS Practitioners were recognised.  These are freight managers whose companies are bronze-accredited FORS members and who have attended the entire suite of 9 workshops.
