2012 Scania Driver Competitions

This week Scania launched its 2012 Scania Driver Competitions. Over 55,000 drivers from across 39 countries are expected to compete for the title of best truck driver in their country.

Scania Driver Competitions began in 2003 and Europe and have since spread all over the world.

The competitions include a series of challenging events that highlight the importance of the skills of drivers, as well as driver training and development to enhance road safety awareness and proficient eco-driving.

“The driver is the single most important factor for economy, environment and safety,” says Leif Östling, President and CEO of Scania. “Skilled and committed drivers deliver transport efficiently, reduce emissions, contribute to better road safety and improve any company’s profitability. These types of drivers are real assets and prove that environmental pursuits and positive financial results can go hand-in-hand.

“We set up the Scania Driver Competitions to shine a spotlight on the drivers, celebrating their skills and highlighting their valuable contribution to society,” says Mr Östling. “In so doing, we also seek to elevate drivers’ status and attract more young people into the profession.”
