Wage survey among members of the Swiss Commercial Vehicle Association

14.07.2022 | gfs.bern on behalt of the Swiss Commercial Vehicle Association (ASTAG)

The member survey showed that association members are most often employed in construction logistics, Swiss general cargo, part-load and full-load transport, and industrial and construction site waste transport. The two types of drivers with the highest gross wages have in common that they usually have more than ten years of service, are at least 38 years old and are unskilled. Most chauffeurs work 45 hours per week, while those under 50 are granted five weeks’ holiday and those over 50 six. The 13th month’s salary has become established in the industry and is paid by a majority of the association members directly from the beginning of employment. Slightly more than half of the federation members also pay out additional remuneration, whereby this most frequently takes the form of a bonus.

The detailed results are available in German in the summary report.

The study results are based on a representative survey of 471 association members throughout Switzerland. The survey was conducted between 26 January and 14 February 2022 via online interview.
