Here at Chris Bennett (Heavy Haulage) Ltd we are proud to hold a silver FORS accreditation. The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a well known voluntary accreditation scheme which encompasses all aspects of safety, fuel efficiency, vehicle emissions and improved operations.Its purpose is to raise the level of quality within fleet operations, and to demonstrate which operators are achieving the standards. Gaining a FORS accreditation allowed us to improve road safety, reduce the incidence of fines and fuel emissions and also increase our industry intelligence. Our compliance team work closely with FORS to ensure that changes in legislation and ever-increasing requirements are adhered to.
With our Silver accreditation, we are ultimately compliant with the CLOCS Standard for Construction Logistics and with TfL’s Work Related Road Risk. The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme is run in conjunction with Transport for London and the major construction projects taking place in the capital including Crossrail and Tideway. Crossrail Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of TfL working to build a new railway for London and the Southeast to improve journey times across London. As one of the first companies in the area to achieve the silver standard, this enabled us to deliver throughout London to sites which expect the highest operational and safety standards. Several companies are coming to us with stories about their goods being turned away from sites on the Crossrail project. Crossrail has introduced the highest standards for all delivery vehicles onto their sites and operate a “zero tolerance” policy. You do not have to be caught out by Crossrail’s policy – our vehicles and drivers are Crossrail compliant.
All of Chris Bennett’s vehicles are fitted with a vehicle compliance kit, which includes fresnel lenses, side scan detection & warning systems and reversing sensors & alarms. With this being said, this makes us the number one choice for deliveries from the North to major London contracts.

Please except my thanks for a hassle free job, we would be very happy you use you again and recommend you to others.
Please send my thanks on to your delivery driver and escort for their help although I did make 4 cups of coffee something I don’t usually do!
I just wanted to email to express my gratitude for the fantastic service that you have provided us over the last couple of months, moving our loads from Ince to Sheffield. This has proven to be a smooth operation and your involvement has certainly enhanced the service, so again thank you. Alan and Andy you have both been so accommodating and you have both provided a great service.
