Road Transport

Safety and solidarity for road transport workers.

Road transport encompasses workers in both freight and passenger road transport, from trucks to taxis and buses. There are also those in call centres and warehouses providing support to the worldwide road transport network. Road transport workers may be formally employed or they work in the informal economy.

We fight for the rights of road transport workers through campaigning, solidarity, research, exchange of information, coordinated actions and education.
