Nestlé Pakistan and the National Highway and Motorway Police (NH&MP) have opened a Drivers’ Training Facility in Karachi.

The new facility, situated on Super Highway, will train Nestlé Pakistan’s drivers based in the southern parts of the country, as well as training to drivers of other public and corporate organizations in the region. Training, including classroom lectures, a driving simulator and on-road coaching, will be provided under the supervision of NH&MP and its trained instructors.

“At Nestlé Pakistan, we believe in safety first and this collaboration highlights the importance of our commitment toward the well-being of communities we operate in,” said Waqar Ahmad, Head of Corporate Affairs at Nestlé Pakistan. “This partnership with NH&MP will enhance and ensure safety on roads for general public as well as safe return of drivers to their families.”

This is the second collaboration between Nestlé Pakistan and NH&MP. In 2009, the first Drivers’ Training Facility was established in Sheikhupura. So far 18,000 drivers from across the country have been trained, including more than 4,400 Nestlé drivers.
