Transportation & logistics issues: People

Lack of talent is going to become a crucial challenge to the rail and public transport sector in particular, and the whole transportation and logistics industry in general. As numerous populations of the world are ageing, the available workforce is ageing along with it.

In consequence of this increasing lack of talent there will be a battle for young and skilled workers. However, the transportation industry is not as attractive as other sectors to young workers, as the PwC study Transportation and Logistics 2030 – Volume 5: Winning the talent race reveals. The wages are comparatively low, the progress in careers is slow and the working conditions are not very attractive. Ideas to motivate and attract younger workers for an employment – especially in the rail sector - will be needed.
