FORS AssociatesThe latest release of the TranSend app makes it easier for organisations to achieve and maintain FORS accreditation and includes detailed vehicle and trailer checks, defect reporting & management, incident and accident reporting – all supported by two-way messaging for communication and document sharing.

Data captured by the driver’s PDA generates an intelligent back-office workflow to monitor and manage vehicle and driver safety, including VOR status with full history of defect maintenance.

TranSend route planning and optimisation help operators to ensure that the safest, most efficient vehicles and routes are used and that routes are adhered to unless relevant authority is provided.

David Cook, managing director, comments:

“TranSend already work with a number of FORS-accredited operators and, as an associate, our aim is to make it easier for other FORS members to ensure that their delivery fleet is being run safely, as efficiently as possible and in an environmentally sound manner with the TranSend app, route management and intelligent workflow processing.”

“We are delighted that TranSend Solutions has joined us as a FORS Associate, offering our members an exclusive discount. We look forward to working with them to help our members run safer, more efficient fleets,” said Paul Wilkes, FORS Business Services Manager.
