In a groundbreaking endeavor within the framework of the EU-funded TECHLOG project, the Chamber of Beirut and Mount Lebanon, in collaboration with the American University of Technology (AUT), has recently initiated a pioneering pilot program aimed at revolutionizing the training of 120 truck drivers. This ambitious project, launched in mid-October, is a result of a strategic partnership with key industry players, including Coral Petroleum Company, IPT (ISSA Petrol Trade), UTS (Union Transport Services), and many others.


The TECHLOG initiative seeks to advance the trucking industry by incorporating cutting-edge simulation technology into the training of truck drivers. This bold and innovative approach represents a pivotal shift in the way drivers are prepared for the challenges of the modern road.
