Crossroads Distribution (Pty) Ltd in KZN
Reason for being nominated:
Female excellence and passion
Ayanda is our only female Driver within the group, not many little girls dream of becoming a truck driver. But for Ayanda Mvelase—trucker and mother to 8-year-old Lizeka, becoming a truck driver was really all she ever wanted to be as far back as she can remember. Two years into her studies to qualify as a social worker she overheard a group of men talking about an opportunity to be a trucker through a learnership program. With as much tenacity and confidence that she could muster Ayanda managed to convince the learnership management team to allow her to join the Learnership program.
Besides being a mother and partner – trucking remains her first love. Being inside the cab inspires her, meeting new people, seeing different cultures and hearing new languages is the best part of her job.
Being a woman behind the wheel brings its own challenges but Ayanda has embodied the essence of good driving with perfect scores in speed, harsh braking, over revving and excessive idling. She has scored an average of 98.04 % on our Driver Behavioural Scorecard.
Ayanda positively shines, she truly embodies the values of Crossroads wholeheartedly.
We are extremely proud to nominate Ayanda Mvelase as one of Crossroads Top Drivers for Iveco’s #ThankYouTrucker competition as she exemplifies, Crossroad’s values of trust, respect, excellence, and ethics.
