Waiting time is also an issue in Europe. In a survey conducted by Vehco, a fleet management solution provider, more than half of the carriers surveyed (53%) reported their drivers wait 3 or more hours per week on average (based on a 40-hour week), with 22% saying their drivers wait more than 5 hours per week.
