Trainees use video games which are based on slip and fall simulator which combines a greasy floor with slippery shoes. Total 6 weeks training and 30 days truck driving in real world.
An obstacle course is offered to new recruits around a mock village.
One week training and practicing is provided to the drivers.
The trainees are asked to practice their training sessions by moving from one station to another under the practice of ‘340 methods’ techniques developed by the competent industrial engineers of UPS (Lin, 2008).
This ‘340 methods’ techniques is specialized in saving seconds and improving safety of the drivers from lifting and loading boxes and even selecting a package from the shelf in the truck.
Computer simulation techniques are used to train drivers in which they move to a mock village named as ‘Clarksville’ it comprises of miniature houses and faux businesses. The drivers have to make 5 successful deliveries in 19 minutes while driving a real truck. This technique lets the drivers learn safety techniques and even their efficiencies are improved by walking on ice with slip and fall simulator (Kadaba, 2003).
This technique provided good results out of 1,629 trainees only 10% failed to accomplish their goals.
