Ever wondered how the UN delivers assistance across the border from Turkey to Syria?


In this video, we’re at the Logistics Cluster transhipment point in Reyhanli, Turkey. Here, approximately 1,000 Syrian trucks are loaded with life-saving items each month before they cross the border into Syria to assist millions in need.

Watch as the Logistics Cluster team on the ground, alongside staff from the World Food Programme (WFP) and the United Nations Monitoring Mechanism (UNMM), work to coordinate this massive relief operation.


Originally authorised under UN Security Council Resolution 2165 in September 2014, the Logistics Cluster provides coordination and facilitates the transhipment of UN agencies’ cargo being transported cross-border into Syria. The current mandate for transhipment operations granted by UN Security Council Resolution 2533 runs until 10 July 2021.
