What is the Driver Coaching Academy?

During six months, Trimble is joining forces with Spedifort and Economic Drive Stein to train and coach 4 selected companies towards a better and more efficient driving style, under the moto ‘Safety meets efficiency’. The evaluation of driving style data helps transport and logistics companies to increase safety and boost their efficiency by reducing fuel consumption and maintenance costs.

Through the use of the Performance Portal, driving style analysis, training, e-learning and driver coaching, the selected drivers are guided towards an optimal driving style.

Driver Coaching Academy Performance Portal

Optimize driving behavior in the long term

With the Driver Coaching Academy, we want to provide answers on:

  • Do you have an overview of your drivers’ driving behaviour?
  • How to save fuel by adjusting the driving style?
  • What impact does an economic driving style have on fuel consumption?
  • How can the trainer inform the driver about his driving behavior and evolution?
  • How to take care of the safety of your drivers?

Take a look at our blog to stay up-to-date about the progress of the Driver Coaching Academy project!
