In partnership with IRU on the COVID-19 pandemic, the UNECE has launched an Observatory on Border Crossings Status with a view to:
- keeping cross-border logistics flows open, giving priority to essential goods like medical supplies and food
- implementing measures in a coordinated and unified way
- clearly communicating changes on enforcement procedures for vehicles, drivers and cargo at borders
Information available on the platform is sourced and updated directly by countries, the European Commission as well as the IRU, who posts daily updates based on feedback from its members.
