Croydon-based Palletline Whitehead is aiming for FORS Silver accreditation after gaining a Bronze under the scheme for the second year running.

The company, which is part of Palletline Logistics, services the South London postcode areas of CR, SM, SE, SW and KT and employs a team of 16. It operates a fleet of 12 vehicles which are DVS and FORS Bronze compliant.

The FORS accreditation follows a re-approval audit which saw the company meet the FORS criteria for best practice, fleet and driver safety, and driver training.

As part of the audit Palletline Whitehead was also asked to demonstrate its operational systems, procedures and documentation and its efforts in reducing its impact on the environment.

Ryan Street, Palletline Whitehead depot manager, said: “My team and I are delighted to have once again achieved FORS Bronze status which is testament to our ongoing efforts in raising the safety standards within our fleet.

“The Palletline name is synonymous with high standards and being accredited with FORS Bronze demonstrates our commitment.”

Street added that Palletline Whitehead is now aiming for FORS Silver accreditation as part of its continuous improvement plan.
