On the road with Eli
After one year in loading, distribution and picking, it's time to start driving lessons in the 40-tonne lorry, and then at 18 they're ready to complete transport orders independently: our budding road haulage specialists. Eli gives us an insight into their training.
At the beginning of the year we reported on four women who like to be in the driving seat (article "Four at once").
Eleonora, Kerstin, Leandra and Leonie are training as road haulage specialists in Ostermundigen. Women as road haulage specialists? If you think it's only men who like to tow 40 tonnes behind them, you’re wrong.
“Driving, being the king of the road. I was fascinated by this from the very first moment,” said 18-year-old Eli in an interview at the time. The ASTAG accompanied “our queen of the road” during the intensive week at the Museum of Transport in Lucerne for a day of securing loads, tilting the lorry cab and fitting snow chains.
