Thousands of delegates from over 50 countries gathered in China recently to discuss pressing challenges and opportunities facing global supply chains.
At the first China International Supply Chain Expo held in Beijing, IRU outlined how international road transport and TIR enhance the resilience of global supply chains, calling for global collaboration to promote transport and trade facilitation and connectivity.
IRU Chief Representative of East and Southeast Asia Yan Zhou said, “The continued global uncertainties have shown us how important resilient supply chains are to ensure the movements of goods. It has also highlighted the necessity for supply chain players to diversify their transport modes and corridors.”
“Road transport under TIR, a tried-and-tested UN convention, reinforces security, efficiency and transparency among all actors involved along the supply chain. TIR significantly improves the flow of goods, cutting transport time and costs, while boosting the security of trade,” she added.
