Russian Bookings Now Suspended

 

Due to the ongoing conflict and escalating hostilities in Ukraine, Atlantic Pacific have suspended offering services or accepting bookings to or from Russia, with immediate effect.

This applies to all goods, with the exception of essential food, medical equipment and humanitarian goods, which would need to be screened before acceptance.

The directors of Atlantic Pacific have decided to follow the precedents set out by UK government and countries worldwide, and believe it to be appropriate to support the sanctions placed on Russia.

Our thoughts and prayers remain very much with the people of Ukraine and with those involved directly in this tragic conflict.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely, with a view to lifting the suspension if and when the removal of sanctions are considered appropriate. In the meantime, we will contact customers with any shipments en-route to discuss alternative arrangements.
