Training Simulator For Zambia

FOUR big names from the transport and logistics sector have come together to supply an HGV driver training simulator for the Industrial Training Centre (ITC) in Zambia, which Transaid has partnered since 2008.
The donation followed a visit to ITC in 2018 by representatives of Big Change, Clipper Logistics, Malcolm Group and XPO, where it was identified that a simulator would allow new drivers to spend additional hours behind the wheel in the safety of the classroom. After learning some basic skills, they can then head out for some practical experience within ITC’s grounds, venturing onto quiet back roads with their instructor, before taking to the wheel of one of ITC’s full-size training vehicles.
Mike Daly, non-exec director of Clipper Logistics and Transaid ambassador, sourced the simulator from Clipper’s in-house training team. Bishopsgate also stepped in to help, expertly crating the components without charge, ensuring safety during the 5,000-mile journey.
