DHL virtual reality (VR) training. For a large shipping company like DHL, loading packages efficiently to optimise cargo space is crucial. To avoid wasting space and money, DHL needed to train many thousands of its global workforce in how to load every shipment to maximise space.

In addition, DHL wanted to provide interactive, gamified training that their workforce would find stimulating in order to improve retention rates and overall employee engagement. Creating a new VR training programme was the natural solution.

Working closely with DHL experts, Immerse developed a collaborative VR experience for warehouse-based cargo loaders to learn safe and efficient stacking procedures.

This involved trainees in a realistic virtual environment using hand controllers to stack virtual boxes of various shapes and sizes, exactly as they would in real life. Credit: music:
