Driver Shortage Is Not To Blame for Supply Chain Crisis

Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.1 | Relevance 4.4

Truck driver Carlos Rameriz said the reported driver shortage causing the supply chain crisis is a big excuse and a lie. Rameriz said there are a lot of truck drivers willing to work. Despite Biden ordering ports to start operating 24/7 Rameriz said, “I don’t know anybody that is working 24/7, if there was work, we would be working 24/7.” Rameriz said truckers wait up to three hours to get inside the port to pick up a load. According to Alfred, a longshoreman who works at a port, the big companies are to blame. Alfred said, “There are truck drivers that come in and are waiting for a chassis and the company does not allow us to give them it.”
