UN Transport Land/Sea/Air

The United Nations Postal Administration (UNPA) issues on this very day three se-tenant strips of five stamps each in the denominations of 44 cents, F.s. 1,00 and € 0,65 on the theme "UN Transport - Land/Sea/Air". Each sheet of 20 stamps will accommodate four se-tenant strips of five stamps.

Transportation plays an important role for the United Nations in its efforts to maintain its peacekeeping and humanitarian operations. United Nations transport vehicles are critical for deploying UN personnel to peacekeeping missions, shipping large amounts of food to meet emergency needs, supplying emergency medical supplies and transporting other cargo and equipment to the field missions throughout the world.

The Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) is dedicated to assisting the Member States and the Secretary-General in their efforts to maintain international peace and security. The Department's mission is to plan, prepare, manage and direct UN peacekeeping operations using all forms of transport, whether by land, sea or air.
