An immediate stop to all DSV operations in Ukraine
DSV has stopped all activity in Ukraine following the Russian invasion
On the morning of 24 February, Ukraine declared martial law as a result of the situation currently evolving in the country. Consequently, DSV has stopped all activity in the country until further notice. This shutdown of operations encompasses the entire Ukraine, including all offices in Ukraine, which have been closed indefinitely to avoid unnecessary risk and keep our employees safe.
Significant operational and capacity challenges expected
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 impacting DSV operations in other countries in the region as well.
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 are seeking to return home on immediate basis.
Keeping employees safe
It is the main priority of DSV to ensure that Ukrainian employees are safe. Therefore, all DSV employees in the country have been asked to stay home, stay safe and follow instructions from local authorities.
DSV is following the situation in Ukraine closely. Please direct operational questions and concerns to your DSV contact.
