Great move Webasto: teaching young drivers about how to save fuel. Note: their BlueCool hybrid product has Shorepower capability.
“As the North America Class 8 truck population and demand for truck drivers continues to increase, Webasto Thermo & Comfort North America decided to take a unique approach in reaching new drivers. Webasto has partnered with United States Truck Driving Training Schools (USTDTS) to develop and deliver a curriculum to educate truck driving students about how to save money on fuel and better the environment with idle reduction technology.
“With this new partnership, Webasto will be a primary educational resource for truck driver awareness regarding fuel efficiency and environmental impact, reaching over 1,000 new drivers each year. “The entire team here at Webasto Thermo & Comfort North America is excited to pioneer this program with such a reputable educational organization,” said Webasto Thermo & Comfort North America President & CEO, Dr. Rolf Haag. “Over the last 20 years, USTDTS has placed over 90% of their students into the truck driving workforce with some of the industry’s largest fleets.”
