TFL Freight Operator Standards Recognition For G4S Cash Solutions

G4S Secure Solutions (UK And Ireland) : 18 August, 2010  (Company News)
Cash in transit experts gain silver standard membership of Transport For London's scheme for recognition of freight operators
G4S Cash Solutions has achieved silver standard membership for the Freight Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) ran by Transport for London. G4S is among the first 12 per cent of companies enrolled on the scheme to achieve the silver standard. The first gold memberships are expected to be announced in 2011.

The FORS is a free, industry-led voluntary membership scheme that aims to improve freight delivery in London. It is open to any company operating vans or lorries in the capital, and helps companies become even safer, more environmentally-focused and better equipped to deal with the pressures of driving in London such as CO2 emissions and collisions.

To achieve silver status G4S Cash Solutions has had to provide ongoing performance data covering the FORS benchmark measures in addition to the requirements of the bronze level membership. As well as legal compliance, members are required to demonstrate their commitment to health and safety, managing work-related road risk and improving efficiency. The scheme covers drivers and driver management, vehicle maintenance, fleet management, transport operations and performance management.

John Lennox, Head of Fleet Management, G4S Cash Solutions (UK) said: "We are delighted to have achieved silver membership status of this respected scheme. We operate many vehicles servicing businesses in London every day of the week and it is important that we lead the way in showing our commitment to implementing industry-leading risk management, health and safety and efficiency programmes. We can now compare and contrast our performance alongside other freight organisations operating in London and with the benefits of FORS information and advice we can identify ways to become even more efficient and improve our operations."

G4S has been providing expert cash solutions in the UK for 75 years and provides cash services across London, with some 2500 vehicles in operation in the UK.
