Canada is experiencing a major shortage of truck drivers and freight and logistics companies say they aren’t able to fill positions as fast as baby boomers are retiring from the industry. Lexon Transport currently has more trucks than drivers. Marc Decarie, the Ottawa-based transport company director, said, “We’ve got six trucks right now without drivers because we can’t find anybody to put behind the wheel.” He has had to drive a few times to make sure deliveries were on schedule.
