The employee involvement and their correct decisions affect the safe daily running of dozens of freight trains. Every year, approximately 500 employees of the CTL Logistics Group, who are responsible for the preparation and running of trains on a daily basis, participate in cyclical instructions. They are loco drivers-instructors, rolling stock auditors, setters and (railway) shunters. CTL staff thanks to cyclical training with experienced instructors, consolidates knowledge and practices the rules of operation in difficult situations.
Since 2019, the CTL Group resources include a modern railway vehicle simulator that allows loco drivers to check the behavior of loco drivers and develop appropriate responses in unusual situations that loco drivers may not have met in their current work.
The simulator serves both its own employees, but it is also possible for the Company to provide services to other entities in the industry. The fact that it was built on the car allows you to reach every employee at every railway junction without having to involve employees in time-consuming commuting.
One of the priorities of CTL Logistics is safety. Every day, employees service several dozen trains. Professional knowledge, experience and training are necessary for this. Every employee is properly prepared to perform their duties, and constant improvement of their qualifications directly contributes to the improvement of safety. Practicing on a modern railway vehicle simulator, they consolidate proper conduct in dozens of standard situations that can happen in everyday work - says Grzegorz Bogacki, President of the Management Board of CTL Logistics.
