William Allen Bolton Limited is a haulage company, based in Bolton Lancashire. We have 97 years of experience and is now in its 3rd generation of the Allen family.
How We Acquired Our Bronze FORS Accreditation
At first, we were approached by one of our current customers, who stated they needed a FORS registered operator and because we were more than happy to oblige with the needs of our customers,
we registered with FORS, in which case were successful in acquiring the Bronze accreditation.
We found that the Bronze FORS assessment was very thorough and high levels of service and skill was expected from all those who applied. This provided us with the assurance that the FORS accreditation was really worth being involved with.
Applying for the FORS Silver Accreditation
In fact, we were that impressed with the FORS recognition scheme that we decided to apply for the FORS Silver accreditation, even though this would require us to invest on a large scale, as we would need CCTV cameras, audible warning systems on all of our vehicles and an increase in the levels of training that our drivers needed to receive. Not only was we looking to receive our Silver accreditation, but we felt that the added safety and learning benefits for all concerned, more than justified the level of investment needed.
Our Next Steps
We are pleased to say that Allen Transport has applied for the FORS Gold Accreditation and this is to ensure that all of our customers receive the best service and that all drivers and staff can carry out high levels of operations, on a regular basis – this includes optimal safety for themselves and other road users.
Just a couple of quotes from us at Allen Transport that we adapt to our strategy for the continence of growth:
“If you want to survive in today’s economy, you must get the education necessary to succeed”
“Our drivers are aware that they must be beware”
