Belgian postal operator bpost has delivered nearly 140 metric tons of non-perishable food and vital supplies to aid Ukrainians who remain in their homeland.
More than 650 post offices acted as drop-off points for donations from Belgian citizens and businesses. Around 370 pallets were packed and loaded onto 12 bpost trucks which were then driven to the Ukrainian border by 24 bpost drivers selected from over 180 volunteers.
Dirk Tirez, CEO, bpost Group, said, “Helping citizens, creating connections and seamless logistics is in bpost’s DNA. We couldn’t be more proud than we are. I want to thank the citizens who responded to the call for donations, but also our teams who made such humanitarian convoys possible. A special thank you to the staff of the post offices, collect agents, the Jemelle sorting center and the truck drivers.”
Benoit Pleska, chairman of Ukrposhta, said, “Belgian citizen have been generous, offering precious aid and products of quality to the Ukrainians who need it the most. We also want to thank bpost for the help, the prompt execution, and the perfect logistic process. Such support, in difficult times, is precious.”
