What's the Challenge?
Volvo Trucks Driver Challenge is a way for operators and drivers to learn what good driving behaviours mean and how they impact on the fuel used.
The Volvo Trucks Driver Challenge is a national competition, open to both Volvo Truck and non-Volvo customers but who operate anything from one truck to a fleet of hundreds. A nominated driver from each participating company will go head to head through regional heats and demonstrate how, with improved driving skills, both in the environmental impact and bottom line!
So how does this work?
From February to August 2014, we will be recruiting drivers in the UK and Ireland to take part in the Volvo Trucks' Driver Challenge. Each company involved will have a follow up meeting where they will go through a detailed report of their drivers' performance and how Volvo Trucks can help to improve the performance across the fleet and save money. Following the challenge, the results will be posted on this page where drivers and operators can track their results through the leader board.
The top 6 drivers will be invited to the National Final in Warwick during September where they will compete and spend the day having their performance monitored in both a Volvo FH & FM. Only then will the winning driver go forward to the Global Final in Sweden with a chance to win a Volvo lifetime experience.
