Our Gold Status Promise to You

As a trusted supplier, our business has been built on our customer-focused ethos. So, when we say, 'trust us to deliver', you can be assured that we mean what we say. Our promise is Gold standard!

Servicing a wide geographical area, across London and the South East, we pride ourselves on our levels of stock, range of products, and swift delivery. We've created and maintained the infrastructure to make this process run like clockwork. 

When it comes to getting the product to you, the lifeblood of our organisation is our fleet of vehicles and expert drivers. With this operation comes a level of responsibility that we take very seriously, and accreditation schemes are an excellent way to demonstrate our credentials.

Seal of approval

We hold the Gold Status award from The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS), a well-respected industry benchmark that monitors fleet management standards, vehicles, drivers, operations, and compliance with the latest laws.

All organisations involved in the scheme are subject to assessment against strict criteria, encompassing all aspects of safety, fuel efficiency, economical operations and vehicle emissions. The scheme helps to improve sustainability and corporate social responsibility across our industry.  

As part of the Travis Perkins Group, we achieved FORS Gold Status – the highest grade achievable for fleet operators – back in 2015. Audited every two years, we are delighted to maintain this accreditation, which reflects our commitment to upholding the very best standards.

Industry best practice

Here at Rudridge, we believe that providing an exemplary service helps to lead best practice within our industry, particularly when it comes to important issues such as environmental sustainability and safety on the roads. 

The big issues

Across the UK, commercial vehicles now make up 20% of the traffic on our roads. The Department for Transport reported that HGV vehicle miles have more than doubled over the last 60 years, which means every company relying on the road network to deliver goods must take responsibility to make our roads safer and cleaner.

The benefits of accreditation include exclusive discounts on essential safety products such as vehicle side sensors, blind spot sensors and side guards, which all our vehicles require to comply with the scheme. These systems ensure that our drivers will always be aware of other road users in close proximity.

Our Group Operations Manager, Darren Price, commented: "We continue to work extremely hard to ensure that our vehicles adhere to FORS' high quality standards for Gold status which we've held for the last three years. It is testament to our excellent team that we continue to deliver in every aspect to provide an efficient, economical and safe service for our clients."
