Aim to produce trained, trusted and tested drivers through driver training from FleetBoard Professional Driver Training

The South African government declared October as National Transport Month in 2005 in order to raise awareness on the crucial role of transport in the economy. The annual initiative is also used to encourage participation from civil society and business to promote a safe and more affordable, accessible and reliable transport system.

In support of the objectives of this year's Transport Month, Mercedes-Benz Trucks has heard government's call and 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 renowned FleetBoard Professional Driver Training, which provides tailor-made, high-quality training programmes that contribute to the drivers' 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 and this impacts South Africa's social development.

"As the leading truck manufacturer in South Africa, it is imperative for us as Mercedes-Benz Trucks 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 and 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 Airbag are just some of the ways we have actively contributed to preventing road accidents," he added.
