HGV crisis set to worsen amid mass exodus of drivers over conditions


Nearly a quarter of lorry drivers expect to leave the industry in the next three years, according to the largest ever survey of HGV drivers by Pertemps.

The findings of a survey of more than 2,500 existing HGV licence holders will further fan the flames of the current driver shortages that continue to disrupt the UK supply chain.

In total, 24% said it was unlikely they would still be driving in three years’ time, with 68% of those saying it was down to poor conditions of life as a lorry driver.

“I literally was bowled over by the starkness of how these people feel,” said John Poliquin, Director of Pertemps Driving Academy.
