2018/19 Drivers Salary Guide


The transport industry is facing significant recruitment challenges with 70% of employers expecting difficulties in recruiting suitable talent into their organisations over the next 12 months.

dh Logistics Appointments, which produced this national salary guide, is the dedicated permanent recruitment division of Driver Hire. We specialise in delivering drivers through to senior managers to the transport and logistics industries nationwide. Surveys were sent to drivers and employers, which highlight the current salaries offered between sectors, and the motivations that both attract and retain an engaged workforce.

The guide looks at drivers and office-based roles in the transport and logistics industries across the whole of the UK. It has also been split into bandings depending on the location the respondent was from.

We work with some of the UK’s biggest names in road transport and after being asked about benchmarking in the industry, we knew there was a need for a Salary Survey Guide. We hope that our findings will help employers to benchmark their current offering and give an insight to what motivates drivers to stay in the transport and logistics industry.
