The CarriersEdge approach enables drivers to learn a topic from their perspective, rather than simply providing a definition of the subject like our previous solution, Atanasova stated. It teaches them what they need to do instead of having them simply watch a video and take a test. Thats especially important when it comes to things like log books or hazardous materials training. Abenaqui Carriers based in North Hampton, New Hampshire, a diversified hazardous material carrier with a fleet of over 50 tractors and 70 company drivers, has fully transitioned its driver training to CarriersEdge courses and its online training platform. CarriersEdge courses are the best value on the market, said Sheryl Smith, safety manager at Abenaqui Carriers. Other companies, including our previous provider, are either expensive and time consuming or inexpensive but have little to offer in terms of content. Its not purely about dollars and cents but with CarriersEdge we have a driver training solution thats both effective and affordable. Although our previous training course provider offered a multitude of topics, many of the presentations were not of a high quality and the information was limited to a beginner commercial driver, Smith stated. We only have to hire about one new driver every six months but we still need courses that are presented in an educational format that treats new and seasoned drivers as professionals. With CarriersEdge we have the content, the presentation and the testing we need. CarriersEdge also provides an affordable means of training drivers who are based at remote locations, some as far as 100 miles away, Smith added.
