Falco Construction’s accreditation to the FORS certification scheme has been renewed for the third consecutive year.

The South-East based utilities contractor had its bronze certificate confirmed for another 12 months following an audit of its systems by the Freight Transport Association? Support Services Director, Alan Seyfi has been responsible for developing the company’s transport resources:

“At any one time we have fifty plus mobile teams in the field so our logistics capabilities are a key factor in our performance as well as a major contributor to the firm’s carbon footprint,” says Alan who introduced the Fleetmatics monitoring system in November 2013.

The state-of-the-art fleet management system incorporates GPS tracking and routing. This, together with driver behaviour monitoring, has enabled the company to reduce its fuel consumption (and CO2 emissions) by over 15% since it was introduced.

“As part of our partnering philosophy, we grant clients login-restricted access to data about vehicles assigned to their contracts,” continues Alan, “our open-book policy demonstrates that our teams working on their projects are located where and when they should be, giving customers greater control over programme and costs.” Seyfi has introduced an incentive scheme based on the driving style scores generated for each driver by the Fleetmatics system.

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