Toyota Material Handling Europe actively support refugees. Truck deliveries to Russia and Belarus stopped.

Toyota Material Handling Europe is following with great concern the conflict taking place in Europe. We call for an immediate stop to the war. To support and show solidarity with the war victims and refugees we are donating 500,000 euros to the International Red Cross. In addition, Toyota Industries Corporation (TICO) has donated 100,000 euros. We encourage our employees, customers and partners to join us in the effort.

We are also actively supporting established organisations and companies handling the refugee and humanitarian catastrophe at hand with our core competencies and other assets.

Our priority in dealing with the crisis is to ensure the safety of people – our own employees, customers and partners.

Toyota Material Handling Europe has no production or own subsidiaries in Ukraine. Our business in Ukraine is conducted via an independent distributor. We are in frequent contact with the company and its people, offering our active support where possible.

We have a fully owned Marketing and Sales Company in Russia employing 101 people. Our deliveries of trucks to Russia and our external partner in Belarus are stopped since early week 9.

Toyota Material Handling Europe operates a dedicated senior task force to monitor and act on any further development. An active and continuous mitigation of risks to the supply chain of raw material, components and ready products to and from our factories, logistics hubs and sales companies throughout Europe is ongoing. As a part of our export compliance program, TMHE has in place an Export Control Policy. This policy covers all sanctions that may be relevant for our European operation. Due to the current situation we have increased our compliance assessments and implements relevant actions continuously.
