The outflow of workers to the EU is leaving Ukrainian delivery cars and trucks without drivers

The outflow of workers to the EU is leaving Ukrainian delivery cars and trucks without drivers, Sergei Grachov, founder of In Time delivery service, complained Thursday at a press conference. “We used to hire day workers, according to the season,” he said. “Now it’s a regular daily practice. A person goes out in the morning, work for the day, and then does not come back. The work force is becoming very mobile, and it’s a misfortune.” The labor shortage comes as, EVO, Kyiv’s digital marketing company, predicts Ukraine’s e-commerce will grow by 30% this year, hitting $2.5 billion.
