Before the final starts, Volvo provides a short training to all competitors with an aim to enhance the previous experience learned from prior training.

Head of the training program Ian Sinclair says: “What we could bring to customers far more than the truck itself despite it is our core competitiveness. The best trucks deserve best drivers. With this concept, we have invested a lot in training drivers how to make maximum use of trucks and achieve maximum efficiency in a safe condition. This is the value we bring to customers.”
