General Motors and Ford donate 100 trucks to Ukraine
General Motors and Ford put their trucks at the service of Ukraine.
The automakers have each donated a fleet of vehicles, with the help of the transport company Maersk, to help with the humanitarian situation.
Last week, GM confirmed that a shipment of 50 Chevrolet Tahoe SUVs had been received by Ukraine’s Ministry of Infrastructure for Humanitarian Affairs to help move civilians out of war zones, according to The Detroit Free Press.
Thusday, Jim Farley, CEO of Ford confirmed that the last of a shipment of 50 Ranger vans had also crossed the border.
Farley tweeted: “Proud of the hard work of our Ford team and our partners at @Maersk for making this possible. I can confirm that the last of the trucks have arrived this week and are being put to work!”
A Ford spokesperson told FOX Business that the vehicles were transferred to the Ukrainian government for use at its discretion.
Both automakers previously suspended operations in Russia in response to the country’s invasion of Ukraine.
