Transport is one of the sectors that were greatly affected by the coronavirus pandemic-induced lockdowns.
With borders closed, it has been difficult for those in the transport sector to operate in a sustainable manner as the needs of their workers also needed to be met.
With the cases of coronavirus declining in the region, countries have been relaxing COVID-19 preventive measures giving hope that the transport sector will soon operate at full capacity.
