Europe can significantly reduce CO2 emissions from the transport sector – here and now, and in the future. This was the message at the high-level Scania Transport Conference, which was held in Brussels on 14 November. The Conference on sustainable transport was attended by political decision-makers, interest organisations and the media.
Eight out of ten drivers in Scania’s Young European Driver (YETD) competitions believe that the competitions will help to raise the status of the driver profession. They also think that YETD can help in changing driver behaviour when it comes to road safety and fuel efficiency. These are some of the findings from the 2012 YETD survey.
Scania’s Open Day on Saturday, 8 September, at its largest production centre in Södertälje attracted nearly 11,000 visitors. The Open Day was held as the final in the 2012 Young European Truck Driver (YETD) was decided adjacent to the Chassis Production workshop.
Gabriel Warde was overjoyed as he received the cup – and perhaps more importantly – the golden key to a brand new Scania R-series as winner of the 2012 winner of the Young European Truck Driver Competition. “Now, I can feel the pressure releasing but it’s good to be on this side of the finishing line.”
