Freight Driver Shortage

The government’s logistics training body, Skills for Logistics, has published  a report entitled A Looming Driver Shortage? which suggests that a shortage of freight drivers will restrict any possible economic recovery.The authors say there are substantially more vacancies than candidates, which has led to wages growing faster for drivers than other employees across the country.

They also say that fewer people are taking the required Long Goods Vehicle (LGV) driving tests and that over that the past four years, there has been a 31% decline in successful test passes.

The report clearly shows that the logistics sector, which is vital to the UK economy, needs to be made more attractive as a career option.
