Transport to Poland
De Rooy employs many drivers from Ukraine. Initially, the company wanted to collect clothing for the families of its own staff. In the meantime, so many things are coming in, that a large part is going to distribution points in Poland. Poland has received many refugees from Ukraine.
According to the company, the Ukrainian drivers make diverse choices, now that war has broken out. Some drivers decide to stay in the Netherlands, others go back to their homeland to join the fight against the Russians.
