Schneider National will use MPRI simulators to train drivers
Schneider National Inc., a major U.S. provider of transportation and logistics services, will buy motion-based driver simulators made by MPRI for use at Schneider's training academies in the United States and Canada over the next 12 months.
Schneider's driver training program has been primarily instructor-based. The new program will incorporate both computer and simulation training, 'in order to expose drivers to a broader range of on-the-road scenarios, including driving in inclement weather, handling equipment failures or navigating heavy traffic,' Schneider said in a statement.
MPRI, part of L-3 Communications, is based in Salt Lake City, Utah. Schneider has its headquarters in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
