Transporters call for fair deal in Covid recovery

[ February 10, 2021   //   ]

European forwarders’ organisation Clecat and a number of other shipping and transport organisations called on EU Member States and the European Commission to ensure that transport receives adequate consideration after the European Parliament endorsed a Recovery and Resilience plan with a budget of €672.5 billion on 9 February. They said that while hit hard by the pandemic and the various restrictive measures, the sector has demonstrated its crucial role in the supply of goods and movement of people and has thus proven its indispensability for a functioning European Union.
