British authorities intend to engage the military in delivering food to supermarkets due to a shortage of truck drivers.
The Sun notes that the military will be staying in hotels. All these activities are carried out as part of Operation Rescript, which was launched by the country’s Defense Ministry in March last year in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

In late July, the British Association of Road Carriers announced a shortage of truckers in the country. According to the association, it is approximately 90,000 people, including 25,000 EU workers, who left the country after Brexit.
To address the issue, the Cabinet of Ministers announced the simplification of the procedure for obtaining a license to drive a truck. But the association said such measures would not help normalize logistics: it would take at least five months for the new rules to take effect.
The organization notes that the problem can only be solved by allowing European workers to return to the UK. There, in particular, he pointed out that in some regions, for example in Northern Ireland, it is not possible to attract new employees from among the country’s citizens, despite a 20% increase in wages.
