2010 Scania Driver Competitions Begin
"The driver is the single most important factor for economy, environment and safety. Skilled and committed drivers will deliver energy efficient transport, reduce emissions and contribute towards safer roads,” Leif Ostling, Scania CEO said in a release.
"We set up the Scania Driver Competitions to put the spotlight on the drivers, celebrate their skills and highlight their valuable contribution to society. By this we aim to raise driver status and attract more young people into the profession.”
Attending drivers will have to prove their worth in a series of different challenges, starting with a set of multiple choice questions regarding cargo, fuel-efficient driving, rules and regulations, which will be completed online while registering. And then comes the hard part, the skills test, which will require the driver to prove his/her worth. The full details on how the contest is structured can be found by accessing this link.
"The Scania Driver Competitions provide an ideal platform to discuss and address issues that help cut road accidents and increase profitability and sustainability within the industry,” Erik Ljungberg, corporate relations vice president added.
