CarriersEdge Adds Course To Help Drivers Maneuver In Tight, Congested Conditions


CarriersEdge introduced a new course to help drivers safely handle one of the most hazard-laden aspects of their jobs — maneuvering in tight, congested conditions while making deliveries.

The course, “Trip Planning, Parking and Deliveries,” gives drivers the tools and awareness they need to make deliveries without incident, the company said.

“Driving safely on roads and highways is a major concern for the trucking industry, but some of the more frequent events occur when traveling at slower speeds,” said Jane Jazrawy, co-founder and CEO of CarriersEdge. “Vehicle and property damage arising from parking-lot collisions and fixed-object strikes are common occurrences, but there are preventive actions that drivers can take to minimize them.”

The course uses CarriersEdge’s mixture of text, graphics and photos, real-life illustrations, interactivity and short quizzes to deliver material to drivers in a clear, understandable fashion that helps them retain the information for use on the job.

CarriersEdge makes the latest course, and more than 70 other full-length and refresher courses, available any time and any place drivers have access to a computer or mobile device and an internet connection.
CarriersEdge explained it has also developed management tools that allow fleet managers to track driver training.

The course will give drivers the tools to:
Prepare themselves, their cargo, and vehicle for a delivery
Understand how distraction and complacency contribute to collisions
Prevent collisions in truck stops and parking areas
Use safe parking and backing procedures
Properly inspect, couple and uncouple a trailer
Avoid personal injury
