International top drivers PostNL gather for the fifth Drive Me Challenge

The Drive Me Challenge was organised for the fifth consecutive year with 12 ambitious teams from the Netherlands, Italy and the United Kingdom.

On October 13 the teams delivered parcels on a route of 85 kilometers and did special exercises on a track in Lelystad, the Netherlands. A jury assessed the drivers on fuel consumption, speed, customer focus and special manoeuvers, with a focus on driver safety. Economical driving does not necessarily mean that you drive slowly. Quite the opposite, the winners realized the second-best time. Raffaele Bongiorgi from Italy said afterwards: "It was a great experience. We have learned things that we normally would never do, such as the skid pad area and the roll over simulator."
