About the Transportation Industry
The transportation sector is an important industrial sector in the economy that deals with the movement of people and products. Services range from couriers and shipping to airlines and logistics.
In 2022, the Road Haulage Association (RHA) cited a shortage of up to 100,000 skilled drivers, which dates back to 2016. Much of the deficit was due to losing around 15,000 drivers from European Union (EU) member states due to the pandemic, challenges around Brexit and new immigration rules.
However, the rising demand for green logistics, along with the advent of tech-driven logistics services and IoT-enabled connected devices that assist in tracking objects and remotely controlling the transport process, is primarily driving the UK logistics market.
The industry is trying to attract a younger driver demographic to help lower the current average age of the UK’s HGV drivers, with The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) clearing the testing backlog of around 30,000 HGV driver tests by spring 2022, according to Logistics UK.
Whilst the pandemic has proved challenging, it allowed businesses to assess and improve their processes. There has been an increased awareness of the importance of measuring and monitoring business operations. UK-based fleets have embraced and implemented better driver engagement strategies. As we return to some semblance of normality, having a flexible, agile and resilient approach will enable the logistics industry to survive and thrive.
