Truck driver shortages hitting Canada’s forest products sector

A shortage of truck drivers is hampering the country’s forest sector as shipments have been delayed and at least one producer was forced to slow production because of a lack of wood chips.

Weyerhaeuser Co. chief executive Doyle Simons said Friday that availability of transportation services has been a challenge, especially in the past quarter.

“We, like other companies, are, in fact, seeing that type of tightness,” he said during a conference call about the company’s results.
