The transport of goods between EU Member States is set to increase by 50 % between 2000 and 2020.

The Project

The transport of goods between EU Member States is set to increase by 50 % between 2000 and 2020. Road transport – which already conveys 73 % of goods on land – will undoubtedly take the lion’s share of that expansion.

Light Commercial Vehicles (LCV) under 3.5 tons are an important part of the vehicle fleet and over the past years have taken over a consistently increasing portion of the transport capacity in Europe.The transport with Light Commercial Vehicles is constantly growing. This fact also results in an increase in traffic accidents in this sector.

 

However, as things stand today, due to the small-scaled nature of the companies in the industry, training courses for LCV drivers are seldom implemented, as hardly any time or financial resources for education and development of the drivers are available.  Hence the need for uniform training content, as well as for developing methods and for making the training subject matter available to the drivers cost-effectively and independent of time and place.

Sprinter pro driver project is a Key Activity 2 project funded under the Erasmus+ Programme. It will cover a 2 year period: October 2017 – September 2019.
