Safeducate signs MoU with Volvo Eicher
With an aim to encourage driving as a profession, Safeducate has recently signed MoU with VECV. Driving Training Schools will be launched across India.
Safeducate has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Volvo Eicher Commercial Vehicles ( VECV) on September 18, 2015 with the aim to skill and train the rural youth by providing driver training.
Divya Jain, Founder & CEO, Safeducate, says, “Safeducate is proud to partner with VECV for creating driver training schools. We have worked relentlessly over the years towards adding value to the lives of our drivers. We have been training drivers regularly over the years, and have even created driver residential and recreational facilities at our Logistics Parks.”
“We have improved processes significantly to expedite the turnaround of vehicles at our facilities, which is otherwise a pain area for drivers. We also keep the average driving time limited to eight hours at a stretch for a driver, unlike a common scenario in the country where drivers are forced to drive for 12-14 hours in tough conditions,” she adds.
The main objective of this collaboration with VECV is to familiarise the new and existing drivers with safe and appropriate driving techniques, so as to get the best fuel efficiency from the vehicles besides driving in a safe manner to avoid accidents.
“This strategic partnership with VECV will help us gain access to the best of driver training material, techniques and tools, which will further enable us to create more and better drivers. As a part of our rollout plan, we would soon be launching two Driver Training Schools in association with VECV,” Jain informs.
