We are FORS Approved!

Ajax Couriers are now fully accredited as a FORS approved operator FORS ( Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme).

WHAT IS FORS

The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is an accreditation scheme that aims to improve fleet activity in London and throughout the UK and beyond.


Who’s it for?

FORS is subsidised, voluntary and open to any company operating a fleet including vans, lorries, mini-buses and coaches.


“The FORS process of accreditation and continuous improvements makes sound business sense, and gives customers peace of mind that the organisation they contract with take safety and compliance seriously. The added benefit of accident reduction and public recognition of high standards means the potential to stand out from others when competing for new business.”

Theo de Pencier, Chief Executive of the Freight Transport Association (FTA)

If you would like more information on what FORS is or how it affects our work with you. please contact us.

Fundraising For The Heart of Kent Hospice! Get involved

As many of our dear friends, staff  & loyal customers know, John our founding director has recently been diagnosed with cancer of the oesophagus. Unfortunately his diagnosis is terminal, but in true spirit John has decided that he is going to do as much as he can to raise the profile of the hospice that has already provided so much support & help to him and his wife & the rest of our family. And he has also decided to set himself a target of £10,000 in donations to such a worthy charity.

John is styling himself as the Man in the Pink Suit. And you can help show your support by making donations through his just giving page by following the link www.justgiving.com/TheManInThePinkSuit
