One goal: Professional Excellence

85% of accidents involving commercial vehicles are caused by human error

Skillful drivers are key for any transport company. Customer satisfaction and trust depend on a driver’s ability to operate vehicles safely and provide impeccable service.

So how can you ensure your drivers achieve excellence in their work?

The power of driver assessment

Leading transport operators understand the critical role of drivers, and they put comprehensive driver management programmes in place.

A key component of such programmes is driver assessment. Measuring the competence of their drivers provides these companies with a clear competitive advantage and reaps considerable benefits such as:

  1. 1. sending drivers a clear message regarding the company’s expectations
     
  2. 2. instilling a continuous improvement culture
     
  3. 3. providing early warning of high-risk drivers
     
  4. 4. identifying areas of improvement in the training process
