Carriers per order account for about 31% of the estimated total of 4.4 million people assigned to the country’s transportation, warehousing and postal sector, according to Ipea. Projections were made based on ISI data and surveys.
The data indicate that the total number of workers in passenger transport for each application amounted to about 840 thousand in the first quarter of 2016, and in the first quarter of 2018, the number reached one million and increased to 1.3 million in the third quarter. for 2019
“Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, there was a decline throughout 2020, but the figure quickly stabilized in the first two quarters of 2021 at 1.1 million people engaged in self-employed passenger transport, 37% higher than it was at the beginning of the chain, in 2016 Ipea reported.
In the case of freight transport, also by applications, the numbers rose from 30 thousand workers in 2016 to 278 thousand in 2021.
“With the emergence of application platforms to deliver goods or transportation of passengers and the consequent technological developments that facilitate more employment in the short term, it is possible to see that the number of people with non-traditional jobs (such as self-employed and temporary workers) has achieved exponential growth in the years recent,” Ipea stated.
