Beginning of 2022, half of the road carriers are short of personnel

It is undeniable that road freight transport industry struggles with a lack of willing and capable employees.

More often than not standard recruitment endeavours pursued by HR departments on local markets prove to be insufficient, in which case cooperation with an employment agency for drivers is a viable solution. It ensures the much needed security and comfort in planning the next steps of development without worrying about personnel.
