Hino Motors Sales (Thailand) Ltd. organized the 4 th Hino Smart Driver Contest 2022 to find the best truck drivers to receive the H.R.H Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn Trophy and prizes worth more than 700,000 baht. This year, the contest is more special than ever as it is an opportunity for the company to celebrate the 60 th anniversary of its business in Thailand.
This year's contest and opening ceremony were held on October 1, 2022, at the TPRO Training Center, Chachoengsao province. The event was honored by Ms.Sirirat Veeravisan, Deputy director-general Department of Land Transport and Mr.Apichart Prai-rung-ruang, Chairman of the Land Transport Federation of Thailand to be the chairman of the opening ceremony. There were also many business partners who provided support.
Mr. Ken Iwamoto, President of Hino Motors Sales (Thailand) Ltd., said that for three years the company has not met with the best Hino truck drivers. It is a time of many changes in work life and health care due to COVID-19 outbreak. For us to return to life in a new normal and to celebrate the special occasion of Hino's 60 th anniversary in Thailand, Hino, as a leader in the truck industry, has continued its policy of improving vehicle quality along with the quality of life of drivers. Hino Smart Driver Contest is a search for the best drivers with all-round qualities including knowledge of engines, tact, driving skills, traffic rules, as well as social and environmental responsibility so that transportation industry in Thailand can bring happiness to people all over the country.
Hino has planned to improve the contest even further. This year, the contest format has been adjusted, and the trucks used in the contest are as close to the social conditions of Thailand as possible. The contest was divided into 2 categories: 1) 4-wheel trucks and
2) 10-wheel trucks, semi-trailers with 4 bases, which are the indicators of those who are qualified as the best truck drivers. Most importantly, it is considered the highest honor for the company, the transportation industry, and all the drivers as the winners from the event received the H.R.H Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn's Trophy. Hino drivers in the contest not only need the skills to drive but also need to be conscious and responsible for other drivers. The Hino Smart Driver Contest is different from any other truck contests in Thailand by emphasizing safety and the proper use of the truck to save money for entrepreneurs and save time from maintenance. At the same time, it also reinforces the practical performance of Hino trucks. Above all, it is helping to create happiness for Thai society.
Finally, the company sincerely hopes that this contest will benefit the transport industry, truck drivers, and customers who use Hino trucks. Keep up with good activities from Hino, which is ready to step with everyone for future sustainable development. This is clearly reflected in our commitment to truck users, which consists of “Together, Bonding, Sustainability”.
