The truck driver shortage crisis
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Truckers are the backbone of the transportation industry. Their shortage might be ruinous for the entire supply chain. The main issue is the driver shortage crisis, whereas the trucker shortage crisis is only a symptom. The true causes are a complex set of factors, where management and technology play a leading role.
- The logistics manager who has to assure last-mile delivery.
- The supply chain manager who has to take a strategic outlook on transportation availability.
- The Chief of Human Resources who has to rethink the hiring policy for drivers.
- The managing partner in a consulting firm who advises her client on their supply chain.
- The SME owner who has to investigate the availability of transportation.
