28 February 2022

Redditch based Oakland International is prepared to fund up to 50 trucks and drivers to take essential food items (chilled, frozen and ambient) to the Eastern border of Poland and possibly into Ukraine if the company can get through.

The company has today issued a call for support from the UK and Ireland food sector to assist the Ukrainian people so badly affected by the invasion of Ukraine.

Oakland is hoping that 50 trucks can be dispatched between Wednesday and Friday of this week.

Oakland International’s Co-Founder and Group CEO, Dean Attwell: “If you are able to support with offers of full pallets or full trucks of food, please email: ukraine@oakland-international.com

Oakland’s own fleet and network of partners in the UK and Ireland can link up for full load collections or give the choice of 10 consolidation hubs which they will be using to build full truck loads.

Oakland will guarantee that all stock gets to where it is needed and they are in touch with embassies and the Red Cross to help guide them with the most needed commodities.
