This can be seen from the recently completed Deutschen Logistik Congress. For comparison: the average monthly wage of a truck driver in Germany is 2,623 euros, while a novice driver in the Netherlands can count on around 2,100 euros.
Incidentally, it’s not just drivers who can earn high wages in the UK. Experienced customs officers are hard to find in this country and can earn around £10,000 per month at the top, including separate bonuses. That equates to about 12,000 euros.
