The Dutch transport, warehousing and logistics company Simon Loos has launched a campaign to recruit 100 truck drivers for its locations across the Netherlands. The company describes a scarcity of experienced truck drivers in the labour marketĀ and is therefore encouraging drivers of other vehicles, persons over 50, early school-leavers and re-entrants on the labour market to apply, offering them the necessary schooling either internally or in cooperation with the bipartite sectoral organisation 'Sectorinstituut Transport en Logistiek' (Sectoral Institute Transport and Logistics) which provides labour market, training and education services. In principle, Simon Loos aims at establishing a permanent contract with its newly recruited employees. Simon Loos is a family-owned company that provides truck transport mainly in the Netherlands, but also in the Benelux. It further provides warehousing, packing-related and transport consultancy services.
