CALEDONIA, Ont. — SelecTrucks is sponsoring a 2004 Classic and a 2004 Columbia Freightliner with KRTS Transportation Specialists Inc.
The cost of training entry level drivers on state of the art equipment with all the bells and whistles is not cheap, says KRTS president Kim Richardson, who runs training programs at his school in Caledonia, Ont. and at Fanshawe College in Simcoe.
The tractors went to Southwood Graphics in Mississauga, Ont. for the finishing touches and have both companies represented, as well as the Ontario Trucking Association and the Professional Truck Driver Institute (PTDI) logos.
SelecTrucks says the trucks will help ensure that KRTS trainees will have access to equipment that is currently being used by fleets in the industry.
Currently, KRTS produces 400 graduates annually at their two campuses and have received donations of equipment in the past.
“This Industry and the people in it never stop impressing me,” says Richardson. “Today’s new Professional Drivers are tomorrow’s industry leaders. SelecTrucks has just invested heavily in our future leaders and the best way we can thank them is to continue to graduate excellent entry-level drivers and owner-operators.”
