Supply Chain and Transport

The pandemic has brought global travel to a halt, grounded many flights, and left seafarers stranded onboard ships for months—leading to disrupted supply chains and fragile economies. Coordinated global action is urgently needed to safely reopen borders and restore the movement of essential goods and workers across the land, air, and sea borders. For global travel and trade to return to pre-pandemic levels safely, travelers, governments, and industries will need a harmonized, standards-based model for health status verification. Members of the CommonTrust Network will discuss how this can happen.
