Tolls and digitalization burden china's truck drivers
According to different estimates, there are 18 to 30 million truck drivers in China. They often work twelve hours a day, sleep in their vehicles, and are separated from their families for months at a time. Without the often self-employed drivers, hardly any raw materials get to the factories and export goods to China's ports. Freight transport by truck accounts for three-quarters of China's freight traffic. But while China's economy is growing rapidly again after overcoming the COVID-19 crisis, truckers are facing rising costs and increasing competitive pressure.
