Stellantis offers its employees the opportunity to become truck drivers

The car industry has been hit hard by the swine flu pandemic, with serious supply problems forcing many factories to cut production days. At the same time, factories are facing a shortage of lorry drivers, which is blocking deliveries, prompting the Stellantis Group to propose a solution that is, to say the least, original.

This is another consequence of covid: the number of truck drivers has fallen drastically in the last two years, resulting in a shortage of truck drivers and therefore vehicles being produced but not being able to leave the factories for lack of available trucks. This is a phenomenon that affects the whole of Europe, with a 25% reduction in the number of available truck drivers, and that affects all manufacturers.

This situation has difficult consequences for the factories, which are faced with saturated car parks where it is almost impossible to store cars. For example, the Vigo plant stores vehicles ready for distribution in two areas: the Port of Bouzas in Vigo and a normally unused esplanade in the town of O Porriño (Pontevedra). These two areas have a total storage capacity of 30,000 cars and are currently full. This means that there are at least 30,000 cars produced and ready for delivery that are not being delivered due to a lack of available lorry drivers.
