Escalation of war in Ukraine - Operational Update02.24.2022
Meest is still accepting packages to Ukraine
Due to the escalation of the war in Ukraine, we need to inform you of our current operational status.
Meest is still accepting packages to Ukraine, with an increased need and demand for food, and other Humanitarian aid, provisional goods, and medical and tactical supplies in Ukraine. We anticipate an upcoming shortage of goods all over Ukraine, especially in Ukrainian stores and supermarkets. You can send a shipment through our head office, any participating agent location or online through our Meest Portal (with drop off at any FedEx location in the U.S.). A list of restrictions can be found here
Meest will deliver everywhere where it is safe to do so. For affected regions, we can coordinate alternate delivery addresses and pick up options. Please ensure mobile numbers are put on all declarations.
Meest is accepting money transfers to Ukraine in those states where Meest is licensed to do so. There are limitations, please call 1-800-288-9949 for additional information. "PrivatBank" continues to serve customers on urgent money transfers with some restrictions. Payment of international transfers is carried out without restrictions through remote service channels, which includes payment directly to the card or through a terminal. There is a limit of $100,000 UAH per day per person. The receiver will receive the funds in Hryvnia (UAH) as most banks are not issuing anything in foreign currencies.
Meest suspends the delivery of parcels by plane and by ship to Russia, Belarus, and by ship to Moldova.
As this is an ongoing situation, we will continue to keep you informed of the status of our shipping services. Check emails from our company, follow Meest-America page on social sites, Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn. For any inquiries you can contact our customer service department at 1-800-288-9949.
We #StandWithUkraine and will continue to support our country and our people in this difficult time.
