Priority Worldwide Global Offices continue Aid efforts to the Ukraine crisis
Priority Worldwide offices in North America, Europe and the Middle East recently passed a major milestone in delivering humanitarian & military aid to the Ukraine crisis. The Group has now transported over 1500 Tons of emergency response freight to the Ukraine and surrounding countries since the beginning of the conflict in early 2022 and shows no sign of letting up on deliveries.
Our offices in the USA, Canada, Bosnia & Dubai continue to route cargo by all modes of transport including air charter, air freight, ocean freight and surface transport in response to the humanitarian, security and reconstruction needs of the Ukraine and her displaced population in other European nations. We take immense pride in supporting our NGO, government and commercial contract customers who are all seeking to assist in what has become Europe’s largest population displacement since WWII.
Our company was amongst the last known organisations to land a commercial charter flight carrying aid items in Ukraine airspace, landing a chartered A300F cargo aircraft in Lviv just hours prior to the invasion commencing. Since February 2022, we have transported all kinds of support materials including shelters, medicines, food supplements & mixes, hygiene & dignity kits, PPE, bullet-poof vests, uniforms, vehicles, and construction equipment. In March of this year, the World Bank estimated that it could take $411 BN to rebuild the country so logistics will continue to play a crucial role.
Commenting on the milestone, Kevin Ortuglio, Global Sales Director said
“It continues to be an honor to support both our NGO and Government partners with the humanitarian and reconstruction efforts towards the Ukraine and Eastern Europe. It feels like we are working front line and center at a moment in history that will be talked about for hundreds of years to come”
