Tesco and Iceland bosses warn over Christmas supplies
"The driver shortage is impacting the food supply chain on a daily basis and leading to shortages on the shelves," Mr Walker said. The simple solution he said, was for heavy goods vehicle drivers to be added to the UK's skilled workers list, to help get drivers recruited from overseas. Firms from a number of sectors in the UK have been battling with a supply chain crisis due to a shortage of lorry drivers. Tesco has been offering lorry drivers a £1,000 joining bonus amid a chronic shortage of drivers in the industry. A government spokesperson said last week it was bringing in a package of measures to help tackle the HGV driver shortage, including plans to streamline the process for new drivers to gain their HGV licence and to increase the number of tests that can be conducted.
