The Skills Shortage in Transportation: A Critical Challenge

The scarcity of skilled professionals is significantly impacting both passenger and freight transportation, with specific repercussions on public transportation outlined in a recent report on Tagesschau. Using the Leipzig Public Transport system as an example, the report emphasized that unfilled positions are already causing substantial disruptions, leading to limited and compromised operations. While targeted immigration can be part of the solution, it's crucial to recognize that this alone is not sufficient to address the problem. New technologies, by enhancing efficiency, can play a vital role in reducing the shortage and making passenger and freight transportation more resilient.
