The labor market in this sector is struggling with personnel shortages. That’s what the increasing number of entrepreneurs in road freight (52% in Q2 versus 46% in Q1) and logistics service providers (34% in Q2 versus 30% in Q1) says.
The number of vacancies remains high and pension outflows continue to increase. The number of bankruptcies remains at a low level and the inflow of unemployment benefits from truck drivers and logistics employees is decreasing. This can be seen from the latest Transportation and Logistics Sector Monitoring.
STL: “At the same time, the Sector Monitor shows that (early 2022-Q2) there are more transport employers expecting an increase in their workforce in the next three months (27.7%) than employers expecting a decline (4.7% ) . Expectations about the economic climate are negative.”
