In support of the objectives of this year’s National Transport Month which is partly to raise awareness on the crucial role of transport in the economy, Mercedes-Benz Trucks is offering complimentary driver training to 200 Mercedes-Benz truck drivers. The training can be booked immediately, until the end of the year.

The selected drivers’ skills will be sharpened by the FleetBoard Professional Driver Training programme which provides tailor-made, high-quality training programmes that contribute to the driver’s development. By producing safer drivers through training, Mercedes-Benz Trucks and FleetBoard are moving South Africa forward.

Improved road safety has other inherent benefits, and Mercedes-Benz Trucks realises the importance its role plays in these. Businesses and consumers are at an advantage when goods can be transported faster and more efficiently on our roads and increased mobility, in turn, positively affects the economy which impacts on South Africa’s social development.

“As the leading truck manufacturer in South Africa, it is imperative for us to ensure that our transport system is increasingly safer. FleetBoard Professional Driver Training yields highly-competent drivers that have been trained, tested and trusted,” says Jasper Hafkamp, executive director for Daimler Trucks & Buses Southern Africa.

“Besides positively contributing to the growth of South Africa’s economy, safety is also of paramount importance to us and we have been a leader in this regard for decades as well. Life-saving safety features on our vehicles such as Telligent Lane Assist, Telligent Stability Control, Telligent Distance Control, Active Brake Assist and Driver Airbags are just some of the ways we have actively contributed to preventing road accidents,” he adds.

To book the complimentary training and to find out more about the terms and conditions, contact Megen Naidoo on his email at megenthran.naidoo@daimler.com or call him on 012-677-1744.
