Send emergency aid to Ukraine with PostNord

PostNord has received a request from the Ukrainian Post, Ukrposhta, for help in collecting and transporting emergency aid to the Ukrainian people.

As of today, private individuals can send emergency aid packages to Ukraine free of charge.

The items will be shipped from Sweden to Poland, after which the Ukrainian Post will be responsible for transport and distribution in Ukraine. Ukrposhta distributes emergency aid where the need is greatest.

- Our colleagues in Ukrposhta do a fantastic job of maintaining the mail delivery and carrying out their important social mission during the ongoing war. When those who risk their lives every day to keep Ukraine going ask for help, it goes without saying that we will do what we can. Therefore, it feels important to provide the opportunity to send relief packages from both Sweden and Denmark free of charge, says Annemarie Gardshol, President and CEO of PostNord.

The current war has made it difficult for distribution and logistics in Ukraine. In such a situation, the Ukrainian post can take an active role in getting humanitarian aid on the ground. Ukrposhta has therefore appealed to European postal distributors for help in obtaining important supplies that they can distribute to citizens who remain in the country.

- We are pleased to be able to support the Ukrainian Post's collection of humanitarian aid. Ukrposhta wants to be able to continue its activities as far as possible and despite the ongoing war, and help to make everyday life easier for the people inside Ukraine. Many Swedes want to support the Ukrainian people in a completely terrible situation and now we make it free and easy to get help all the way to the Ukrainian people, says Mathias Kr├╝mmel, CEO of PostNord Sweden.
