If you are looking for a partner for road transport on EU-Ukraine or Ukraine-EU, you must take into account a few aspects:

  • Ukraine is outside of EU, so the transports are made based on the specific authorisation;
  • Customs procedures will be drawn up by customs commissioners both for loading the goods (opening operations in the export country / transit customs declaration) and for their delivery (closing operations in the import country / transit customs declaration);
  • The customs formalities can be handled by the importer / exporter or the carrier, upon request;
  • Most of the trucks that carry out these transports are owned by transport companies from Ukraine.

Based on our experience and extensive network of partners in Ukraine and EU, Europa Expeditie can offer to you transport solutions for both, exports and imports.
