STL to attend APEC Transportation Ministerial Meeting in US


     The Secretary for Transport and Logistics, Mr Lam Sai-hung, departed for Detroit, the United States (US), today (May 14) to attend the 11th Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Transportation Ministerial Meeting.
     During the three-day meeting (May 15-17, US time), transportation ministers and senior officials from 21 APEC member economies will discuss some of the most pressing issues in the transport sector as the Asia-Pacific region emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic. The discussion issues include, among others, ways to strengthen the supply chain in the Asia-Pacific to drive economic growth and job creation, as well as the application of low and zero-emissions transportation technologies to tackle climate change.
     Speaking at a session on supply chain resilience on May 16 (US time), Mr Lam will share how Hong Kong’s well-connected transport network, world-class infrastructure and close communications with other economies have minimised the negative impact of the pandemic on air cargo and logistics, and in turn enabled Hong Kong International Airport to retain its position as the world’s busiest cargo airport.
     During his stay in the US, Mr Lam will have separate discussions with representatives from other APEC member economies to exchange views on strengthening co-operation on transport matters.
     Mr Lam will return to Hong Kong on Friday morning (May 19). During his absence from Hong Kong, the Under Secretary for Transport and Logistics, Mr Liu Chun-san, will be the Acting Secretary for Transport and Logistics. 

Transportation Recruiting Company Reaches 80% of the Plan for 350 CDL Drivers Hired Outside the Country

 Truckers Recruiters, truckersrecruiters.com, a company that recruits drivers for highway cargo trucks, has almost reached the proposed figure of 350 drivers to hire internationally in less than 24 months.

According to CEO Mr. David Lazo, “It has been a long process for two years where the expectations were very great, but in the end we saw that it was not the case. The conditions we requested were difficult to meet, mainly in the Spanish-speaking countries in Latin America. Many infractions committed, many accidents in the driving record. It was very difficult for us to hire.”

Mr. Lazo also referred to the issue of delays by the Immigration Department,

“We had delays in visa approval processes from 5 months, right now they are already 8 months, this issue is very complicated, the transportation companies requires drivers but Immigration does not help with processing times.”

The Department of Transportation talks about a need for more than 80,000 drivers after the pandemic, it has been very difficult for transport companies to hire.
