UD Trucks Announces Best Fleet Drivers in SA

The two local winners and their managers are off to Japan in April 2020 to compete in the global Extra Mile Challenge finals against competitors from around the world.

The UD Extra Mile Challenge is UD Trucks’ global driver competition and now in its fifth year. It uniquely tests all aspects of a driver’s everyday experiences from pre-inspection to fuel efficiency, safe driving and parking skills.

Locally, 19 fleet drivers competed in either the Quester or Quon categories and the competition encouraged drivers to think more commercially by highlighting the trade-offs between speed, delivery time, fuel efficiency, safety and smooth driving.

“Through this competition we aim to help enhance driver capability and reinforce confidence in their own abilities, but also in the UD Trucks products they drive every day,” said Gert Swanepoel, Managing Director of UD Trucks Southern Africa.  “We wish the two winning drivers all the best and know they will do South Africa proud!”
