Students experienced the opportunity to look at the technology involved in the Fonterra trucking logistics side of the business. They were exposed to all the technology that is in both the truck and the associated computers they run. Students were encouraged to get in and look at how these vehicles are operated. Thank you to Fonterra Manager Robert McCoid for visiting us at Opihi College!
