Transporting New Zealand is putting out a plea for truck drivers to keep supply chains open while the country is at the “red” traffic light setting. Chief executive Nick Leggett says the industry needs more drivers to keep up with demand.
Nick Leggett CEO Transporting NZ says his organisation has been watching the impact of Omicron on supply chains in Australia, the United States and the UK and is aware of how the fast-spreading virus could decimate the number of available drivers. One in four transport companies have vehicles parked up due to driver shortage.
