FTA calls on the road transport industry to solve the driver crisis

FTA calls on the road transport industry to solve the driver crisis

The FTA has said the driver shortage is a crisis the haulage industry must solve for itself.

At today’s FTA  summit, Solving The Driver Crisis, in Coventry, FTA’s MD of policy and communications, James Hookham, said: “The shortage of qualified drivers is a problem that only the road freight industry itself can solve.”

More than 700 people registered to attend the oversubscribed summit, which has today addressed issues such as how best to change the image of the freight and logistics industry to boost recruitment; what barriers prevent potential drivers from getting on the road; and the best methods of hiring and retaining drivers.
