Serbia lacks 12,000 professional drivers
Serbia has been struggling for years with a shortage of professional drivers, and this shortage is estimated to be around 12,000.
This information was presented by the Managing Director of the Association of Road Transport Srbijatransport, Goran Aleksic, who, in a statement to Tanjug, said that there was a greater shortage of bus drivers than truck drivers.
According to employers’ estimates, there is currently a shortage of 12,000 professional drivers in Serbia, of whom about 8,000 freight vehicle drivers and about 4,000 bus drivers.
Aleksic says that the problems with the lack of professional drivers began more than ten years ago, that is, with the abolition of compulsory military service, because a very large number of drivers were produced in the army earlier.
