Dear Editor,

I read almost every month about a driver shortage. I am a driver who finds himself always spending waiting time to get a backhaul. I talk to my friends who are in the same boat.

How can management say they are short of drivers when they make us sit so long?

Is this a shortage or an under-utilization? The chainsaw was invented some years ago.

The logging companies do not expect their people to use crosscuts anymore.

Why do transport companies expect their drivers to donate time to support obsolete systems?

Please recognize this letter as a request to your paper to see that there is not a driver shortage, only a poor allocation of resources.
