SALABERRY-DE-VALLEYFIELD, Que. – Andy Transport announced today that it has acquired the DriveWise TransSimVS driving simulator to help develop its eco-driving best practices and enhance the company’s safety.
The simulator has multiple visual scene and road surfaces, along with moving and stationary objects. It is believed to be a powerful tool for driver training since instructors can customize the driving experience for each individual student.
“We say that we invest in a simulator or a tool, but in reality we invest in our people, said Ilie Crisan, Andy Transport’s president. ”With the simulator we want to improve the effectiveness of our training programs so that it targets awareness, skill development and more importantly long-term behavioural changes. At the end of day, we want to make sure that our drivers get home safely to their families and that we create a sustainable safety culture.”
