Keltbray, which is a UK leader in specialist engineering, construction and decommissioning services, is one of just 13 companies to achieve Gold Status in the Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme (FORS) run by Transport for London.
This recognition scheme aims to encourage freight operators to raise standards within their organisations through education and incentives, and only freight operators who demonstrate self-improvement and deliver environmental savings are awarded the Gold membership.
Keltbray’s progression from silver to gold membership involved implementing a robust improvement plan, meeting core objectives as well as continued provision of benchmark data and improvement thresholds.
This ultimate accolade personifies Keltbray’s commitment and dedication in delivering a lawful, environmentally efficient and safe haulage operation throughout London, and Group Managing Director, John Price, said that this puts Keltbray at the pinnacle of freight operations: “We are proud to be only the 13th company out of the more than 3,000 registered FORS Companies to achieve the Gold standard. This clearly demonstrates our commitment and determination to deliver continuous improvements and environmental savings,” he said.
Keltbray recently invested more than £5.5 million in its logistics as part of a strategy to reduce its carbon footprint, improve safety and cost efficiency. This investment included the purchase of 32 new Scania tipper vehicles which comply with Euro 5 emission standards, and an exclusive agreement with Reflex for the hire of 196 commercial vehicles, including transit and smaller vans.
The van fleet includes 78 Volkswagon Blue Motion vehicles, which boast a range of innovative energy-saving technologies, from automatic start/stop to low rolling resistance tyres, which are helping to reduce fuel consumption, emissions and running costs.
