COVID-19 and road transport. ILO Sectoral Brief
The road transport sector is essential to social and economic development and guarantees mobility across jurisdictions and countries.
But in order to curb the spread of COVID-19, many countries around the world have placed restrictions on domestic transit and/or closed border crossings for road freight transport services. Urgent action by governments, the social partners and parties to road transport supply chain parties – including shippers, receivers, transport buyers and intermediaries – will be critical in addressing decent work challenges for these key workers to tackle the crisis effectively.
