Viktor Shevchenko, co-owner and CEO of the ZAMMLER GROUP, spoke about COVID-19 crisis and its impact on logistics and warehousing in an interview with the portal of the Ukrainian Association of Business Leaders (UABL).
(For reference: UABL is an association established in 2018 as an association of professional leaders. Currently, it counts 1,404 members)
According to Shevchenko, the logistics business in Ukraine has dropped by about 20-30% with the occurrence of the coronavirus pandemic. The biggest losses (that are still being estimated) are in the aviation direction. The road transportation shows a decline by 15-20%. Maritime logistics has been affected by the coronavirus as well: before the crisis the container from China to Ukraine cost USD 3,000, now it is USD 13,000-14,000. The warehousing business was not affected by the crisis at all and even showed growth.
Moreover, Viktor Shevchenko told about the plans of ZAMMLER GROUP for the nearest years: “This is investing money in Ukraine and in the development of the Company in new markets. Currently, we are considering two countries for potential market entry.”
