Organizations Call on World Leaders to Secure Global Supply Chains

Open letter urges leaders to remove restrictions hampering free movement of transport workers

source: USDA Grain Transportation Report

On September 29, an open letter from global trade organizations urged world leaders to work together “to remove restrictions hampering the free movement of transport workers, and guarantee and facilitate their free and safe movement.”

These organizations assert such actions are urgently needed to secure global supply chains.

Specifically, the letter proposes prioritizing transport workers to receive World Health Organization-recognized vaccines, as well as implementing “globally harmonized, digital, mutually recognized vaccination certificate and processes for demonstrating health credentials (including vaccination status and COVID-19 test results).”

According to the letter, the collective industries represented by the organizations behind the letter account for more than $20 trillion of world trade annually.

The industries include 65 million global transport workers, over 3.5 million road freight and airline companies, and more than 80% of the world merchant shipping fleet.
