Our strategy for moving forward…
• Flight operations to KBP (Kyiv, Ukraine) and all Russian points (SVO, ZIA, and OVB) have been suspended until further notice.
• All freight currently in transit will be held in GYD in our secure facilities at no storage cost to our customers.
• Should freight currently being held in GYD need to be returned to origin, please contact us and we will coordinate the return with as minimal cost as possible.
• Once Ukrainian airspace reopens and there is a legal option to move freight into Russia, we will immediately begin moving freight to the destination and advise customers of new flight schedules.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by this and hope to quickly return to peace. Should you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call or contact our GFS team, and we will do our best to answer.
