The article presents views of Hans-Jorg Bertschi, chief executive officer of Swiss logistics company Bertschi, on acute shortage of truck drivers in transport companies. Bertschi puts the shortage down to two factors: young people not wanting to join the industry because of the long working hours and absence from home and the new Working Time Directive. He blames idle time spent by drivers responsible for shortage of drivers.
