The workers who keep global supply chains moving are warning of a ‘system collapse’

CNN (09/29/2021)
  • The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) recently warned of a “global transport system collapse” if governments don’t give transport workers freedom of movement and priority to receive Covid vaccines.
  • “All transport sectors are also seeing a shortage of workers, and expect more to leave as a result of the poor treatment millions have faced during the pandemic”.
  • The transport system faces constant strain as workers quit, can’t work abroad (travel restrictions) or get sick.
  • Only 25-30% of sea cargo workers have been vaccinated.
