Abstract (Translated): 
Many changes are influencing the working situation of drivers in the transport sector, mainly internationalization and globalization impacts for example by regulations from the European Union or competitive forces putting pressure on costs and wages. Interestingly the main research and political discussions are limited to the specific transport mode context for example for truck and bus drivers in road transportation systems. Therefore, this research paper addresses and compiles a state-of-the-art comparison of working conditions (working times, wages et cetera) for driving jobs in different transport sectors, namely road, rail, water and air. From the comparison of law regulations, wage schemes and also existing study reports and surveys regarding these working conditions further research needs and questions are derived to accompany future research and discussions in the transportation sector - chief among them the question of impacts by demographic change on this specific group of people who can be determined the backbone of the transportation and logistics sector.
