January 2020 is starting off as being a very busy month, with the first few days back in the New year, booked with FORS LoCITY and SUD Equivalent, courses for various haulage firms in Leicester and beyond. We are currently developing a brand new FORS LoCITY alternate course with a much better focus on cities across the UK rather than the focus just being solely on London.

And then it was all over, and it was time to reflect. Everyone was truly exhausted from doing their very best every day so it felt right to treat them to something more than just a few extra quid in the pay packet.So what…
