news. news news, a fuel crisis and one of the richest nations petrol pump and the u. k. are running dry because the truck drivers to deliver the fuel is bring it to blame. and house, i suppose, deeper problems within the whole industry is as i walk into the program. i'm iran con, it's not something you see every day in the u. k. dr. is waiting hours in long queues to fill that cause at the petrol station. the government says panic. buying is partly to blame for the pumps, running dry fuel companies say there's no shortage. petro just
a lack of tanka drive is to deliver supplies. the government has placed soldiers on standby to help, and it's grunting temporary work visas to 5000 truck drivers. but industry leaders say the measures aren't enough to solve the crisis. andrew simmons reports from london a new working weekend. this isn't the normal london morning. good luck. the fuel station here ran dry 2 days ago. it's been waiting for this moment. tanka drivers are in short supply, not the fuel, whatever the results, the same misery for some not kind of buying ada about top. she ran out of fuel 100 meters from the petro pumps, after a search that started in the early hours. and i was very emotional, so i can, i cried. i cried all these to be missing. i cry that i feel the motion once the probably look the people who are going for
a similar wife lives disrupted this driving instructor trying to get fuel to prepare his learners for their driving tests. that's about 56. this is going to between now and next week. really, truly terrified what might happen with them. are these guys. so i've been going around like a list you can and linda, nothing. an opinion polls suggests that more than 60 percent of the voters feel, the government is mishandling the situation. and some of the messaging for ministers isn't helping the public mood. the only reason that we have an issue, the moment with some petrol stations, not petula, for course, is that people are buying petrol. they wouldn't. the most important thing everyone can do is just get back to normal fill that caught up as they normally would. and not by the actual less they needed, it would seem to be wishful thinking that this crisis is going to go away without government action crisis. what crisis has been the government stance up to now?
now it's changing because people don't like being referred to as a buyers in a situation such as this, there is a tide of public descent. and so the pressure is on the government as the tension on the for courts increases. some companies have introduced rationing competition measures have been stopped, so the few come his can corporate own logistics. another move the government has made is to try backing up u k. tank drivers with foreigners no longer able to work here because of rex it short term. these is are available for 5000 foreign truck drivers. it isn't county to work. andrew simmons, which is 0 london. and the lack of truck drivers is contributing to the case worse, shortage of basic goods since 19 seventies. from building materials to medical supplies and groceries, many items are in short supply supermarkets, a warning of empty shelves ahead of christmas. the pandemic in britain's departure from the e. u of also disrupted supply chains. now the shortage of truck drivers is
a problem across europe. as well, charles, what analysts say poland short of more than 120000 drive is la shit. germany needed another 60000 and the industry has been struggling to attract new workers. as many leave for jobs with better pay and working conditions. since the start of the pandemic, the industry has faced more price to deliver essential goods. the huge growth of online shopping has also had an impact. ah, let's bring it, i guess in edinburgh, doug rankin a. lori driver and the editor of truck and dry the magazine in london, vicky price chief economic adviser at the center economics and business research analytical. can me, di, i can roy, senior lecturer in procurement and supply chain management. a liverpool john moore's university. welcome to the program. let's begin. and i didn't refer with doug rankin. the government says this is panic. buying the holy ginger. she says
actually this is a lack of drive is due to briggs. what's the truth of it? lack of dr. of blacks, that was grossly over simplify the situation and talking about the fuel crisis at the moment, but seems to be the public because collectively gone all $4.00 and $1.00 is not really affecting scotland curious, well noticed and time called dr. o's, house of south. busy application for a d, off to the level of benefits such as petro and diesel. and i don't understand a huge number, something like this appealed to one week to the next was originally a problem associated to b p and nothing that i still sort of tank of industry and the supply of fuel. so something's got very blowing propulsion. busy and the press and the media with what's going on because that's a shortage of fuel as no difficult to keep your stations replenished. and people seem to be continually panic,
buying the message doesn't get to tell them not to do so. it's very strange and unusual times right now as a driver because the driver shortage situation does keep evolving from one week to the next a. but what is the reason behind that dr. a shortage, i still really understand is it a lack of dr. is, is it simply because dr is from the you just like when it comes to the u. k anymore? because why would they do this too much pipe work? brackson isn't a major factor and the driver shortage. it's played a pile tenet, but those are storage number of different factors which have all come to play at the same time. and that was the tax change and i'll south a 5 which made a lot more. busy difficult for drivers to operate on a self employed basis and it made a lot less. busy attractive, so the last driver there was a driver cpg deadline and 2019 reports lost a lot of older drivers to the industry because lot of drivers need to do felt if 5
of those training all the way up to 5 years to keep the license and a lot of guys can just decided about going to bought out and cut all of us in the lock, then certainly paid to that. so the last a lot of old drivers and they wouldn't be full time but would take up a lot of the slack and they would just see it and and those also. busy busy last year the d v l a n d vs have done tools very correctly. and the onset of the pond demick and we had no nerd drivers coming through last year at all and nobody, nobody was passing driver's tests. so those are a lot of different factors and that you could also say that those people, if you want to become a lot a drive and it's very expensive. so people who want to can't do and that isn't enough support. and also the industry has an image problem by the enough people wanting to become lot age hiv outside of the rules of 300 test spots for vocational driving tests. not taken up the cda last week,
and the one hundreds before bought hundreds before lunch. and the government is going to create a best saying those i'm needing to know the facts, truck capacity, but using the ministry of defense, but they don't have enough people. one thing to take the test to the moment or able to. so that's curious, one from outside, i'd like to know a little bit more about but just to pen up thing on one simple fact that it's not a church like comp to multiple things all going on. not the same time. a perfect storm if you will. vicki price in london, you're an economic advisor. what do you think of the advice coming out from the british government? we're going to have 5000 temporary visas that's going to magically sought out the problem. surely. what we seem to have is a shortage of about 100000 lori drivers or all the regions have just been explained for breakfast, play, depart as well. and it's interesting if you talk to the retailers who have been there shouting about us for quite some time. and if you know,
talk to the general distribution companies as well. i, which are suffering right now from shortages. people prepared to drive the trucks that should really be moving things around. breakfast is actually being blamed quite a lot and the worries are the, the, the reaction from the government so far has been a bit slow. and very bitty, in other words, you know, if you have a 100 hassan bacon says, and you bring in 5000 in us with some special licenses and hope that they will do the job for 3 months. and then go back because they're meant to be temporary to the problem simply isn't going to be solved. so it is an issue. plus, of course, the way in which trade is happening across what you find is not very many foreign laurie drive is one to come in or even in a business is one to engage because they can't do what they did before in the u. k . they don't have the freedom to move around to pick things and move them somewhere else, which means that you've had that shortage there to the unwillingness for people to
take on a load and bring you over to the u. k. we said, deprive you, of course, all workers who might be able to drive other tracks or even their own truck and take things around because of the change in the cab, what does room she can do that very easily any longer because we're outside the you have it, i am just going to come to you in just a moment. i want to bring in doug you rankin hit. one of the interesting things about this is this temporary visa situation. meghan issue 5000 temporary truck driver licenses. they get a last 3 months, but i was on a couple of romanian chat platforms where they were reacting to this, this particular in romania where they were like, why would we bought, why would we go for just 3 months? i've got a good job. we're not going to give it up just to go and help the brit. so yeah, it says the holiday, the roads college association has been asking for a long time to finish, you know, ready to be ready to get late. but, and from. busy you, we need to get people on,
but we've been asking the question over and over again. who is wanting to come here for us long lane of drive us, who are prepared to come over to the u. k. and how does that going to work? of it, how on earth are we going to get people who are going to leave the job. busy and stay, for example, romania and come here for 3 months. and then what happens is i've got to go home again. did they have a job to go back to and remain? because perhaps that employer is going to look very favorably on them for just a thing stacks. what are they going to love? doesn't make any sense at all the short tell these are facts it's. it's bizarre if they want to go and look to get dr. sudden from other countries i don't think you've got to look beyond. busy europe, but it needs to be it's not you're not going to get a correct fact. so, you know, you're probably looking at asia and you're probably looking at africa to get dr. or to go want to emigrate to come here and live permanent. what i
don't like those us all desire from europe to come here. this is simple as visa let's let's so i want to, i want, i want to put that full to me die. i can tell you that you've got a fascinating job title, procurement and supply chain management. now, as i understand that supply chain management, as it currently stands means everything is done quite last minute. you bring in your goods, you take them to say on the midlands, and then you get another truck and you drive that full of goods from the midlands into europe. but briggs as paid to that. the supply chain was always last minute breaks. it doesn't allow for that, is that right? yes, i think these big stock does talk next week. the supply chain within the country is linked also to availability of the pages of the larger. so logistics,
transportation, or possibly take to goods, movements of goods and services within the country, and these are linked up to different life, my delivery. so for instance, some of the shortages in, in, in truck drivers. you know, it's not often re shot. that means people just reacting to the needs and that's what's posted, the product bind. so lots of for station all supermarket have delays delivering lives in socrates and population bill. you know, we don't know when decent we're not stop. we don't know whether this would continue the ripple effect and also be felt in order to be economy. so, but this is not just one factor which will look at it from the systemic point of view. there are different factors played out share, and the supply chain cannot be exempt from vicky price for the reasons. one of the
things that makes the supply chain work is this idea. the immigration actually does work in certain sectors of the british economy. i'm the son of immigrants. my father is incredibly suspicious. he came from pockets on to the u. k. because he was asked to do so by the risk of him by them because there were certain amount of jobs that the british people just didn't want to. dick, there was the wind rush generation of black british people from the caribbean, who came over some of those have now being deported. back to jamaica, there's a miss trust here. of the british governments. actual promise on whether they'll deliver on these. these are these visas in this list, idea of immigration making things. what? so that's putting people off from coming here and working. it's also mixed messaging is going on and i cannot make advisor. i mean, are you shaking your head of the way the messaging is coming out from the brits? yes, a little bit. i have to say communication hasn't been at his best, but a interesting thing is, if you look at the evidence, migration has been
a great contributory factor to the growth of you can call me. and of course, joining the eu has also been beneficial from that point of view because businesses have been able to expand without worrying too much about whether get the labor from . and of course yes, in some areas, perhaps wages were kept slightly lower than they otherwise should have been, but not very many. in fact, the evidence suggest that overall is, hasn't happened across the economy, but it has help companies respond to the demand that it's also cause helped a grow the economy will generally and therefore create more jobs. so we had very low unemployment as despite the fact that was so many immigrants coming in and working and many of them become permanent from, from the you. and that now, the fact that we've left is giving a bit of a shock to the economy to which we haven't quite adopted. and the messaging, therefore, is really quite important when people are not really against engaging, starts to realize we need them in so many areas such as know right now the cast
extra re streaming for more labor as well as it isn't just the laurie drive us who generally get paid a lot more than people who work in the cast sector about it seems to have been spreading across including construction sector. so it's not good for the economy, the short term and what the o. c. d has said you're going to search for it from cooperation development that has been looking at inflation expectations and various countries. it has highlighted the u. k as a one country, which is going to see more of the push in terms of inflation because of the supply chain constraints that he would just discussing earlier. which are going to be much tougher in the u. k than perhaps in other places which are also having some of those issues. but not to the extent we're explain to them here the rank in the british tabloids having a field day with this. i keep reading headlines that suggest that truck drivers now being offered signing on bonuses of like 2000 pounds. there's wages of like 70066270000 pounds a year for
a truck driver. how much of that is true and how much of that is actually gonna work like, can you bribe the people into becoming truck drivers quickly? i think a lot of those huge wage forgot her absolute nonsense. that's not. busy why i'm hearing from drivers, i speak on the ground level. there's a lot of suspicious sort of figures that got bonded up by very large companies and doing some one phase and 2 phase and pain. golden handshake sees big phones, but we can also find a lot. busy of places that i'm not good companies to want for many cases a lot. it does a lot of undesirable unpleasant lot. busy of driving jobs, which companies are struggling to get people to do. and yeah, the putting these big wage for goes, but that's not the whole part of it. there's other conditions that drive us of us are pretty terrible. there's been nothing said from the government, a tall and proving parking facilities for dr. ho's grant because it's difficult for
some of them to get a safe place to park at night and rest. and again, the money, the money i'm very suspicious of and i don't believe it goes well translate into sort of the real bottle. busy just quickly, just quickly end up getting just quickly, dicky, how long to actually say say if i wanted to become a truck driver in the u. k. now, how long before i make that decision to actually getting into a truck and driving like how long does that take? well it, it depends correctly the deed of processing your license at the moment because they are also culpable. and the been very slow getting licenses back to people. i know someone at the moment who had an accident and lost a license, due to medical asher and no offense and well in the past and ready to go and have been waiting months and months for the license back. but if you want to be
a truck driver, but all several steps you need to jump through, they are trying to fast track people for. so you can go straight from driving a car turn. i'll talk to you later, last a. but as so, but also several steps you guys go through, you've got to got medical and you've got to go into a test or how's the perfection test? you're going to do your drive and grow and process changing. watch, you don't need to do revenge thing maneuver, but you can't just store and do it. and then tribute driving, not even close at crater conrad to process. okay. let me dire. in liverpool is throwing money and short cuts as doug was saying, short cuts into in the exam test. be a solution to this problem because that's what the government seems to be. unfortunately, no, it's just a momento thinking, you know, calling people that come on get more money and then you become a truck. and i've been some of the hundreds of at the common truck drive within 24
hours. so within 2 weeks i've been set lot of this, this is true, but i think what is important now is for the different stakeholders in the logistics on transpose sector to be speaking together. so we want to bid on speaking to each other at the moment you hear different response from the dog man. you know, trying to put together the process for you to become a truck driver. we can't walk inside and so we need to stick with us, including professionals. they need to develop logistics on transport. the need to walk together and find a solution to the spot. i to be this one, that's the walk in condition of the drive. i mixed the job, you know, on the truck, so young people in england, a lot of the truck drive us. they, they eat or sleep in their property don't rest. so there's need for improve working
condition for them. and the government needs to interview or to bring out new employment policies that are targeted progress. and some of the starting is that the walk face vicky price in london to make a terrible pun. but you can see this truck coming a mile off, couldn't you? you knew the ones you'd left briggs that you were going to have problems in supply chain in getting goods into the u. k. because borders had changed up solution of course, were the government here is doing the realize that except for any extra pressures, of course on any inputs coming in and therefore a new trucks come in fully loaded. that would also make things conserve us in terms of getting goods to where there should be going. and we have, in fact, waived the, the rights of we've had to impose this restrictions to next year now. so already there's been a delay in that a number of times this year,
so it's understood that it's an issue, though we've done that in terms of impulse. we don't seem to have really accents at all fast and dealing with the ada problems. all the supply chain have been effective so substantially by all the shortages that we have been discussing today . so yes, this truck was coming and we should have it out of the way would lead them something to slow the speeds. but for the moms, i'm afraid we looked like we are fighting one panic after another and not fantastic too. well. there are people who saying that it's just transitory issues and it will all be solved. but it looks to me and to any comments we've seen that as pretty negative in terms of what we might mean for growth. even in the short term, we've seen g d p here already slowing down this bounce back. we've had since the opening up has slowed down very significantly. and i'm suspecting that when we get the data was september is not going to be particularly good either because of all
the shortages and also the price increases. we're seeing it, doug. iran can guessed in london, vicky price is said, a lot of people think this is transit tree and it's going to be sold. but i do you think that a lot of people are going to have a miserable christmas because this is not going to finish in the next 3 months. this is going to take a while. i don't see my people necessarily need to have a miserable christmas unless the media certain sections of a determined to agitate public enough to make sure that we did then perhaps that well, because if they want to stop panicking, people matter. and so that already i'll be buying a frozen tough case before the stuff even off the shower was could happen. busy but it's not a transit thing that needs to be, can have some fundamental changes in the way the road transport operates under your care. the industries got to get people and to drive these trucks. those terrible.
busy image problem and then destroy, and there's also why you don't problem in the u. k. of getting people to be interested in vocational qualifications as well. because you can get a struggle for people. companies to get people want to be a truck mechanics and tradesman in general, what's something that's a struggle as well as getting drive and to get people to get people to how do we make the whole agenda stay more attractive? how do we get people to say yes, i think i want to drive a truck because even but he loves focus or money getting funded. other people still don't want to do for an awful long time. a lot of these have been like seen is done pay smelly things that are nuisance, that getting your way when you want to go, what can things and then the street has got a big problem and improving the damage and, and also the conditions as well. but goes back to the government because i think
a lot that needs to do to force their parking facilities for supermarkets to treat drivers because i could go off as a whole separate area. unfortunately, doug, here we are running out in the us. we are running out of time. it's a fascinating discussion and one of the things i think is coming out of this is that we need more truck drivers. i want to thank all i guess doug you, rankin, vicky price, intimidated conroy, and i want to thank you to for watching. you can see the program again any time by visiting our website. i'll just dot com and for further discussion, go to our facebook page at facebook dot com forward slash ha inside story. and you can also join the conversation on twitter. we are at a inside story from me and ron kon and the whole team hit by for now. the
