TRATON Talk “Future of the Driver” at IAA: Transportation trapped: where are drivers headed?
  • “Future of the Driver” was the subject of the TRATON Talk on the Company’s first Driver’s Day during the IAA. Conclusion: the headwind against which the driving profession has to battle is strong and the causes manifold.

The shortage of professional drivers in the transportation industry is more and more becoming a problem. This has a negative impact on business in Germany and Europe. The lack of drivers increasingly impedes the smooth transportation and timely delivery of raw materials and goods. The progress in vehicle technology in assistance systems and in the digital network of the logistics chain furthermore requires a more qualified training of drivers. The TRATON GROUP, formerly Volkswagen Truck & Bus, addressed this issue in a Forum "Future of the driver" at the IAA on the weekend.
