DSV has stopped all activity in Ukraine until further notice. “The shutdown of operations encompasses the entirety of Ukraine, including all offices in Ukraine, which are closed indefinitely to avoid unnecessary risk and keep our employees safe,” said the Danish forwarder.
DSV expects that the recent developments in Ukraine will give rise to significant operational and capacity challenges for the entire region, including Russia, and for all transport modes. The situation in Ukraine is considered force majeure, and it is already also affecting DSV’s operations in other countries in the region.
“For now, all air traffic to and from Ukraine has been stopped, and it is expected that other means of transportation will also be affected by the situation. Additionally, the trucking capacity for the region is being affected by tight border controls and Ukrainian nationals working as truck drivers or in other supply chain functions all over Europe seeking to return home on immediate basis,” it said. “The shutdown of our operations also applies to IT, and strict security measures have been taken to protect DSV and our customers.”
