Challenges of Parcels delivery during war time. How FHD Ukraine succeeded
After the 24th of February for most businesses in Ukraine, there were more reasons to quit, rather than to proceed, and this question stood up in front of our company as well. The key issues in making the decision were as follows: our staff, our partners abroad, and the operation of legal customs services. As we got all the positive feedbacks, we started to search for new solutions, as we understood the high importance of our work, especially during those days. We have succeeded, and as a result already in March, we delivered up to 300 parcels across the country.
