    Chronic shortage of drivers in Serbia: No one is available to transport goods

    Serbia does not have enough professional drivers, because many are going abroad due to higher salaries and better working conditions, and many are retiring.

    The Association of Freight Forwarders in International Road Transport “International Transport” recalls that the country lacks between 7,000 and 10,000 such professionals, including those who drive light commercial vehicles, buses, specialized vehicles…

    “We are now in a situation that we cannot transport goods produced by companies operating in Serbia. We have not had drivers for a long time. Another problem is the training of staff, and we cannot solve that alone, without the help of the state. That is why we have recently asked for it.”

    Changes in the school system are announced. Until now, the rule was that a high school student finished school with a C category, and now he/she enters the program that he/she will finish with a C and E category, which means that such students will be able to drive trucks, and not only small vehicles, which is a big step forward, emphasizes Nedjo Mandic, president of the association.

    He adds that the Traffic Safety Act is getting an important amendment – namely, in the future, drivers will be able to go through all the additional trainings for passing the exam for the E category before the age of 21, which has not been possible so far.
