Vensco Transportes Implements Driver Training Programme Led By Scania Mexico’s Master Drivers

Leading Mexican pharmaceuticals haulier Vensco Transportes recently purchased four Scania R 450 trucks and one Scania 450 S. The latter is earmarked for the company’s driver training programme. The programme will focus on drivers without previous driving experience and will consist of five practical and theoretical modules—all guided by a Scania Master Driver who follows up on the drivers’ progress.

“Since this truck comes with more technology and tools that facilitate operations, we saw an area of opportunity to train new drivers from scratch,” says Vensco Deputy Director Daniel Velasco Romero.

Safer Drivers, Stable Career Choices

In initiating the training programme, Vensco hopes to contribute to higher professional skills and safer drivers on Mexican roads as well as raising productivity with lower operating costs. And in recruiting and training these drivers using the Scania 450 S, Vensco’s programme should help to retain those drivers.

“Vensco is convinced of the performance, safety and comfort of Scania trucks, and will be a market reference,” says Miguel Guerrero Robles at Scania México. “Vensco’s plan is gradually phase in Scania trucks in the entire fleet. The objective of this programme is precisely to foster a career with us with a lasting and stable job.”
