UK: In June, Nationwide Produce warned that fresh produce destined for UK supermarkets was being dumped due to a shortage of about 100,000 truck drivers, hampering deliveries of food from warehouses to supermarkets. The shortage is being blamed on foreign nationals who were drivers from European countries but returned to the EU after Brexit. Also, about 45,000 HGV driving tests were lost last year, and few British truck drivers were trained within the past 12 months due to Covid lockdowns. The shortage may be used as an excuse to bring more immigrants into the UK. -GEG
The lorry driver shortage crisis first grabbed headlines in early June when major distributor Nationwide Produce warned that fresh produce destined for UK supermarkets was being dumped due to a shortage of drivers.
The logistics industry, which retailers – especially grocers – rely on to transport goods to stores or warehouses, is facing an estimated shortfall of around 100,000 HGV drivers.
Hauliers have blamed the shortage on a large proportion of drivers being foreign nationals from European countries who had returned to the EU after Brexit.
This was combined with truck drivers not being included on the UK Government’s list of skilled labour, leaving new arrivals needing immigration paperwork.
In addition, Covid-19 had seen no new British truck drivers trained within the past 12 months, while changes in the rules of self-employment had led to a 25 per cent increase in agency driver charges.
BRC food and sustainability director Andrew Opie previously said that retailers were aware of a fall in HGV driver numbers and were working with their suppliers to ensure that consumers still have the same selection of fresh produce.
