Brake has announced that its 2017 Fleet Safety Conference will be supported by FORS. This annual conference brings together fleet managers and suppliers to share best practice in managing road risk. 

It provides a fantastic opportunity to network with fleet professionals, and hear from organisations pioneering fleet safety measures.
