Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) members can receive discounted insurance policies thanks to a new tie-up with Abaco Insurance Brokers.

The insurance company is the latest firm to join FORS’ Associate scheme, which is a collection of businesses that offers FORS members discounts on products and services that promote greater levels of safety, efficiency and environmental protection.

As part of the tie-up, Abaco will provide members with exclusive policies, enhanced cover, contributions towards risk management programmes – such as employee training, claims analysis and reporting software in order to comply with the FORS standards.

According to FORS, businesses wanting to become an associate member need to pass an assessment process with their product or service being supported by customer testimonials as well as independent reports.

“We are delighted to offer our members the new range of services from Abaco Insurance Brokers,” said Paul Wikes, FORS business services manager. “Its commitment to the changing needs of the sector will be welcomed by FORS members, and it is great to see insurance companies recognising the positive impact raising standards will have across the industry.”
