Empowering the Role Models

On 13 September 2019, DCVI received a visit from 35 selected drivers who were competing in the 2019 Abdi Yasa Teladan event. During this visit, DCVI gave appreciation and support to drivers by demonstrating the process of assembling Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles in accordance with German standards, visiting the end-of-line test area whereby product quality control is carried out, and presenting information related to Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles.

Through this activity, DCVI showed its support for drivers to understand aspects of driving safety from a production perspective. Hopefully, drivers could increase their vigilance to operate vehicles according to their workload and function consistently. Additionally, the drivers were expected to better understand ways to operate safety features in their vehicles as to enhance passenger safety.
