TRANS­PORT JOUR­NAL­IST and truck­ing oper­a­tor David Whyte, left, has been wel­comed to Sca­nia Aus­tralia’s team of driver train­ers.

Back in 2007, Whyte won the in­au­gu­ral Sca­nia Young Aus­tralian Truck Driver of the Year Com­pe­ti­tion, and in re­cent years he’s worked as a truck jour­nal­ist while also run­ning his trans­port busi­ness.

He will work to pro­vide cus­tomers and driv­ers with highly-qual­i­fied, ex­pert ad­vice re­gard­ing the safest and most ef­fi­cient ways to op­er­ate ex­ist­ing Sca­nia models as well as the New Truck Gen­er­a­tion.

“I am re­ally ex­cited to be join­ing Sca­nia and the driver train­ing team,” Whyte says.

“I know the brand very well from the com­pe­ti­tion and also driv­ing a Sca­nia P-se­ries for many years.”

Driver ser­vices man­ager Richard Bain says Whyte brings a wealth of knowl­edge to an al­ready high-cal­i­bre group.
