The deficiency of truck drivers threatens the economy and supplyings to the population in Germany

The denunciation the association of haulers BGL

The German association of the road haulage Bundesverbandes Güterkraftverkehr Logistik und Entsorgung (BGL) has launch a new alarm for the serious deficiency of truck drivers in Germany that can have imminent negative consequences on the distribution of the goods in the nation and on its commercial exchanges with foreign country. BGL has evidenced that, thanks to the efforts of the logistic associations, the cooperatives of road haulage and their institutes of formation, in a 2018 total of 18.167 people has obtained the driving licence for truck, number that is however decidedly inferior to about 30.000 truck drivers who every year stop the activity. The association has emphasized that this trend is in existence for a long time, with the consequence that conveyors and shippers must refuse store clerks because they do not have a sufficient number of drivers. BGL has emphasized that this constitutes a danger for the economy and safety of supplyings to the population.

The German association has explained that the diffused deficiency of truck drivers in Europe has causes many detailed lists and, in particular, in Germany the lack of a social acknowledgment of the role of the haulers is having a strong impact negative on the accesses to this working field. BGL has rimarcato the necessity that the public image of the truck drivers must return to improve so that the haulers receive the appreciation who deserve for their the difficult and indispensable job.

The association has specified that another factor that returns the life difficult to the truck drivers and invoglia less and less people to dedicate itself to this job is constituted by the bad organizational conditions to the terminals of cargo and drainage of the goods, where the times of wait has become incalculably long, where the sanitary conditions are unacceptable and where sometimes also the classified acceptance to the truck drivers is not of most pleasant. "More and more often - it has denounced BGL - it happens that the truck drivers say: to terminal XY? Not, I do not go us more"

Moreover - it has explained the association - it is necessary to intensify the fight against the lack of parkings, problem that lasts from years, also for reasons of safety of the traffic. To such purpose BGL, specifying that although during the last few years it is made a lot, has denounced that on the German freeways, for example, 35-40,000 parkings for truck lack ill-fatedly and the night search, often useless, of a parking still makes part of the daily job of tens of thousands of truck drivers in Germany.
