Mainz. Deutsche Bahn uses the shortage of truck drivers in Great Britain to advertise freight rail transportation.
Shipping subsidiary DB Cargo addressed Britons with an unusual letter on Friday. “To everyone affected: A train driver can replace up to 52 truck drivers,” the English-language subsidiary Deutsche Bahn wrote on its official Twitter account.
The severe shortage of drivers currently has dire consequences on the island: long queues form in front of gas stations that are still open, many tanker trucks cannot deliver on time. Supermarket shelves also remained partially empty.
