As the situation around the COVID-19 outbreak continues to impact more and more countries, DSV is making sure transports arrive as quickly as possible, especially for important goods, such as medicines, protective clothing and food.
Considering the very restricted freight capacity on commercial flights, we make every effort to transport your shipments to the destination safely and without delays where possible. To ensure our customers’ supply chains operate as smooth possible, shipments often must take in-direct routings to the final destination, which increases costs in freight and handling.
As a consequence, we will temporarily and until further notice have to pass on any additional charges of airlines and service providers to our customers.
This website will be updated continuously.
