When a global emergency such as the corona virus hits, we vigilantly first think of the individual human victims. People are getting sick, many of them dying and the accumulation of personal tragedies hits all of us as a global and national community. But eventually stories start assembling into a big picture which allows the exploration of implication. We continuously ask ourselves questions of how will such a crisis impact national businesses that are directly tied to its effects.
In the case of the transport industry, we are not certainly eager to punish transport companies for events beyond their control. Never the less corona virus is reducing transport revenues especially as the government bans any forms of unnecessary movements. Some transport companies whose prices have drastically suffered since the outbreak have considered setting up short term cost saving programmes while many are not sure if they will continue operations after the covid 19 pandemic.
