Immediate stop to all DSV operations in Ukraine
As a result of the situation currently evolving in Ukraine, the country declared martial law this morning. As a consequence, DSV has stopped all activity in the country until further notice.
The shutdown of operations encompasses the entire Ukraine, including all offices in Ukraine, which are closed indefinitely to avoid unnecessary risk and keep our employees safe.
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 now also affecting DSV 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.
The shutdown of our operations also applies to IT, and strict security measures have been taken to protect our customers and DSV against cyberattacks.
DSV is following the situation in Ukraine closely, and there will be regular updates here as the situation unfolds.
