Palletway’s six owned depots across the UK in Birmingham, Bristol, Milton Keynes, London, Cardiff and Edinburgh have met the bronze level requirements of the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) for another year.

The pallet network said the accreditation for the six depots emphasises Palletways’ ongoing commitment to fleet and driver safety, to curbing its environmental impact and raising efficiency levels.

Garry Curtis (pictured), director of Palletways UK owned operations, said: “FORS is the industry standard we strive to retain, and our bronze award sends out a strong message to our employees, customers and competitors that we remain committed to investing in our hub infrastructure and our people.
