Driver Recognition Programme Expands to South East Asia
Fleet Forum Driver Recognition Programme Kicks-Off with Full Support from PAE and RMA
Fleet Forum is pleased to announce that with the support of PAE and RMA, the Driver Recognition Programme will be launched in South East Asia. The programme, which was launched two years ago in East Africa, has been received with great enthusiasm by the humanitarian sector, with over 600 drivers signing up in the region. From August, the Driver Recognition Programme will be open to 18 countries in South East Asia and will come to a closure with the Driving Champions Final taking place in February 2018 in Bangkok.
The Driver Recognition Programme recognises the driver who is an inspiring example for others in terms of road safety and health, cost efficiency and friendliness as well as the corresponding organisation who understands the critical role they play in delivery of aid and development and take the time to show appreciation for their drivers.
At the 2017 Fleet Forum Annual Conference, PAE and RMA formally signed up as Title Sponsors of the programme in the region. In this capacity, they will fund the execution of the Qualifying Rounds as well as a large part of the final event: The Driving Champions Final. At this event, the best drivers from different humanitarian organisations compete to win the Driving Champions Award. Both PAE and RMA understand the critical role drivers play in the delivery of aid and development and welcome the opportunity to recognise them for their accomplishments.
Over the past 60 years PAE supported complex and critical missions by providing global logistics and stability operations in some of the most challenging environments in the world.
