SEKO Logistics will partner with three Chicago-based humanitarian relief organisations to continue supporting humanitarian aid work in Ukraine.

The logistics company will work with Operation White Stork, Project Aid & Rescue and Be an Angel to provide additional medical supplies to Ukraine through HemaSource.

In collaboration with these organisations, which have been dedicated to delivering in-kind donations and humanitarian aid to Ukraine since the conflict began, SEKO will ship 27 pallets of medical supplies, including emergency first aid kits and other trauma supplies, at no cost.

Upon arrival, distribution teams on the ground in Ukraine will distribute the pallets directly to hospitals in dire need of supplies.

Since February 2022, SEKO has donated and provided more than $300,000 in goods and services to support those impacted by the conflict in Ukraine.

This initiative has been aided by SEKO’s partnership with the Ukraine Logistics Coalition, a non-profit focused on providing supply chain services to bring vital medical and humanitarian supplies into the region.

“We are truly inspired by the work of these organisations. SEKO is people-focused in all we do, and we’ve built a network of humanitarians who work hard to make a difference and change the lives of others,” said James Gagne, SEKO’s president and chief executive.

“As a global logistics provider, it’s our responsibility to leverage our assets, network and capabilities to serve as the backbone for so many other organisations and partners on the frontlines.”

Through its SEKO CARES initiative, SEKO serves as both a coordinator and an active participant in humanitarian relief needs around the globe – not only introducing organisations and corporations to one another, but also directly handling the end-to-end supply chain to move aid – from pick-up to final mile delivery into medical facilities, distribution centres and individuals’ hands.
