Virtual meeting of the Friends of the Chair of WP.24 on the COVID-19 impacts on intermodal transport and logistics

26 June 2020, 10:00 to 13:00 CET


Purpose

The Friends of the Chair of WP.24 on the COVID-19 impacts on intermodal transport and logistics is organized to attain the following objectives:

- To discuss the lessons learned and the actions taken in UNECE countries to limit any negative impacts COVID-19 caused to intermodal transport and logistics.
- To consider the ways to promote intermodal transport and sustainable logistics in the aftermath to COVID-19, especially through measures aimed at recovery of the national and regional economies,
- To reflect on the emerging intermodal transport and logistics models as a catalyst for the recovery to encourage a more sustainable use of freight transport.

The meeting is to help the secretariat prepare an official document on the impacts from COVID-19 on intermodal transport and logistics and on possible recommendations for the future of the sector for consideration at the 63rd session of WP.24.

The meeting is also meant to help the Working Party on Transport Trends and Economics (WP.5) in executing its mandate from ITC 82nd session by informing WP.5, as relevant, on a proposed international action in the post-COVID-19 work on intermodal transport and logistics led by WP.24. The Friends of the Chair meeting is thus to complement activities of WP.5 such as the Virtual Multidisciplinary Advisory Group Meeting on Transport Policy Responses to the COVID-19 Crisis.
