Workers Who Maintain Supply Chains Warn of Worldwide ‘System Collapse’
The International Chamber of Shipping, a coalition of truck drivers, seafarers, and airline workers, has warned in a letter to heads of state attending the United Nations General Assembly that governments need to restore freedom of movement to transportation workers amid persistent COVID-19 restrictions and quarantines.
If nothing is done, they
warned of a "global transport system collapse" and suggested that "global
supply chains are beginning to buckle as two years' worth of strain on
transport workers take their toll," according to
the letter. It was signed by the International Air Transport Association
