FORS has announced that it will reduce its annual subscription fee for new and existing members from 1st March in a move designed to assist fleet operators during the pandemic.
The news comes after FORS has frozen annual fees for operators for five consecutive years, saying ‘we have strived to deliver some financial respite that’s fair to all members’ at a time when the transport and logistics sector has sustained considerable commercial hardship.
Fee reductions will apply to all existing members renewing their membership, and to anyone registering with FORS, from 1 March 2021, with revised costs calculated according to fleet size.
‘We have worked hard to maintain our service levels during the health crisis and we have strived to deliver some financial respite that’s fair to all members based on their fleet size and regardless of whether they are new to the scheme or existing members,’ said FORS Director, John Hix.
‘2020 was extremely tough for many in the transport sector and only now are we seeing genuine signs that the movement of goods by road could return to normal levels in the second half of 2021.’
He added, ‘Our members already know that FORS best practice can deliver real operational savings, and I urge all operators to maintain their focus on safety and efficiency.’
