Göteborgs Posten, 11 Dec 2017, online:-
Figures from the Swedish Confederation of Transport Enterprises (Transportföretagen) and HUI Research show that the transport industry faces a major recruitment need. In Västra Götaland County, the industry is estimated to have a deficit of 715 truck drivers in H1 2018. A total of 473 bus driver positions also need to be filled. Without any political intervention, the transport industry might experience 30,000 to 40,000 vacancies which will never be filled in the period until 2030. According to the education manager at the confederation, Caj Luoma, quality needs to be raised in the educational system as a whole, while self-driving vehicles could also contribute in a longer perspective.
