JOHN RAYMOND TRANSPORT AT FOREFRONT OF FORS

Bridgend-based haulier, John Raymond Transport, is a business that knows how to move with the times. 

For example, it has often reinvented its service since its establishment in 1945. 

More recently, it has relied on FORS as a benchmark to ensure its operation remains safe, legal and compliant.

John Raymond Transport started out as a regional haulier serving the agricultural industry in South Wales. 

As local industry evolved, so too did the business, moving into steel and insulation transportation during the 1960s and 1970s. 

Since the turn of the century, the company has expanded and become a leading UK operator and FMCG logistics provider.  

An early adopter of FORS, John Raymond Transport became accredited in 2010. 

In addition, the business lays claim to being the first operator in Wales to achieve FORS Silver. 

FORS Gold came in 2015 – a year before John Raymond Transport became a part of the Nolan Group. 

Since then, the company has retained its FORS Gold status. 

Furthermore, it looks to FORS as a benchmark for best practice in safety, efficiency and environmental protection.

Geraint Davies, COO, said FORS’ training package had been of particular benefit.

“FORS has been the bedrock of driver training for us”, he explained. 

“The SUD training, for example, translates into fewer collisions because drivers are more aware of the risks.”

 However, improved driver safety is just one of the benefits of the FORS training package. 

For example, the LoCITY course helps to equip drivers with the knowledge and skills to drive in a more efficient manner. 

According to Davies, who has been with the business for 21 years, efficiency is an area of focus for John Raymond Transport.

Concluding, Davies said aligning the business with FORS gives the company “the peace of mind that we are doing things the right way”.
