UK hauliers ditch container work in favour of Amazon ‘gold rush’

Container drayage hauliers are shifting to driving for Amazon. It’s a clear economic case— they can make more per shift driving for Amazon, and with easier work.

Of course it is the holiday season, and there is plenty of Amazon work. That may not be true after the season is over.

But it shows the line of thought independent trucking firms follow. And the same would be true for owner drivers. They are tired of being jerked around by container shipping firms.

Cargo movers need to start being sensitive to the drivers’ concerns.
