Mahindra Logistics, one of the largest 3PL solution providers in India, has announced that it has successfully trained 10,000 drivers across the country. The sessions were conducted at over 229 locations, and focused on sensitising, training and empowering drivers about safety and security.
The company's training module incorporated a defensive driver program, which it says is aimed at enabling and mobilising a large number of drivers to drive responsibly, understand vehicle conditions and statutory compliances, safe driving in diverse conditions, behavioural training, stress management and communication.
Some of the other key training aspects included road safety; emergency and crisis management; conflict management — especially road rage; female passenger safety in people logistics; vehicle maintenance and sustainability; statutory compliances and first aid during incidents/accidents amongst others. The program also included training drivers on behavioural and softer aspects such as developing inter-personal skills, managing stress, coordinating with different teams.
Anand Mahindra, chairman, Mahindra Group, in his letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said: “For me, this is a significant achievement as a responsible business group and I have no doubt that Mahindra Logistics will continue to support 'Make In India' with their focus on 'Move in India', while upskilling drivers’’.
