A-Plant, a FORS Gold operator, decided there was a requirement for better driver training after identifying areas for improvement, including fuel consumption and tacho infringements.
Fleet Source was chosen for its ability to deliver training across the country, the range of courses available and flexibility with course dates and participant numbers.
“They were the ideal provider to deliver such a vast training programme,” says Shaun Winstanley, A-Plant’s director of transport services.
Rebecca Guest, FORS administrator at A-Plant, adds: “The booking process was very simple – we decided what courses to book, contacted our dedicated Fleet Source client relationship manager to find out available dates in which they could send a trainer to our sites, and then we confirmed. It really was that easy.”
She adds: “Plus, being the largest provider of Vulnerable Road User training (Safe Urban Driving) in the UK, I had no doubt that they could meet our specific challenges.”
Fleet Source has provided over 1,400 A-Plant drivers in 36 locations across the UK with DCPC training since 2016.
