Lorry drivers ‘boycott’ Lidl for being inflexible over staff shortages and delivery delays

The i says Lidl shoppers could feel the effects of the country’s lorry driver shortage more than most this week because of a “boycott” by haulage firms.

The UK is experiencing a severe shortage of HGV drivers with Brexit, changes to the tax system and a large backlog of driving tests caused by the pandemic contributing to an estimated shortfall of 100,000.

This is having an impact on the UK’s food supply chain, as haulage firms and suppliers struggle to secure enough delivery drivers to transport produce to supermarket depots and wholesalers.
