Hull-based D&P Haulage are celebrating after achieving FORS Silver accreditation.
D&P Haulage, part of Palletways, has held a FORS Bronze accreditation since 2013 and last year decided to work towards FORS Silver accreditation.
To achieve FORS Silver, operators must commit to monitoring levels of fuel, safety and fines and charges, ensure their entire fleet is fitted with additional vehicle safety equipment and implement an approved, progressive driver training programme that focuses on the safety of vulnerable road users. D&P Haulage is the first Palletways member to gain FORS Silver accreditation.
Paul Charlton, Principal at D&P Haulage, said: “The FORS Silver accreditation is a great coup for us. It sends out a strong signal to our customers and competitors that we are committed to improving the safety of our fleet.”
D&P Haulage handles single pallet loads to large scale consignments. The company was founded in 1984 and has enjoyed steady growth year on year. Today, the company operates from a four-acre site which includes a 65,000 sqft warehousing facility close to the Port of Hull. D&P Haulage specialises in the express distribution of consignments ranging from a single pallet through to a full 27t trailer load.
