UN agencies recognise TIR as COVID-19 recovery tool

Read Time:30 Second

The heads of eight United Nations specialised agencies have issued a joint statement designating eTIR as a key trade facilitation tool for the first time.

According to the statement, “a safe and efficient intermodal transport system is facilitated by the use of United Nations instruments, such as the United Nations TIR Convention and its eTIR system […]. These instruments allow for moving cargo across borders without requiring physical checks and for reducing contact between people.”

As governments look towards economic recovery, they can leverage TIR to support safe and secure transport operations, while limiting further spread of the virus.
