Documents Needed

After you have paid for a shipping service to Ukraine, you will be redirected to a page where you can download and print out the relevant shipping labels, i.e

AWB (Courier Air Waybills - barcode) - Proforma or Commercial invoice - Address label.

The above documents are standard for any international shipment.

Please note, if additional documentation is required for the import of any particular item, it is the customer's responsibility to provide them at destination.


Goods travelling by 'Cargo' are subject to different restrictions to those travelling as carry-on luggage.

A shipment to Ukraine is deemed unacceptable if: it is classified as hazardous material, dangerous goods, prohibited or restricted articles by IATA (International Air Transport Association), ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) or other relevant organisation. Many items which appear harmless in everyday use can pose danger on air transport and are consequently forbidden for transport.

The following page displays a sampling of common prohibited and restricted goods.


Packing Advice

Your parcel must be boxed and well packaged. This will reduce the risk of damage to any item during transit or any associated automated distribution process.

Please be aware the item is not taken by hand from collection to destination and will visit many sorted facilities on its journey. For that reason, you need to protect the items to ensure they make it from A to B safely.

The following packaging guidelines are recommendations to assist you in packaging your shipment:


Shipment Protection

When you book a shipping service to Ukraine, you will be able to choose an appropriate level of cover for your shipment. We offer enhanced parcel protection for up to £2000 for a small additional fee.

If you do not purchase enhanced Shipment Protection, your shipment will be only covered to a maximum value of £50 as per the limited liability set out in our Terms & Conditions and subject to your parcel passing minimum packaging requirements.

Please note that the declared value for customs purposes is not related to the declared value selected for Shipment Protection. We encourage all customers to purchase shipment protection cover for loss or damage.

The Ukrainian city of Odessa lies on the Black Sea in the south of the country. During the era of the Soviet Union, Odessa was the most important port in that vast country and, since its independence in 1991, Ukraine has come to house two of the most important ports - Odessa itself and Yuzhne, an internationally vital oil terminal, supplying fuel for both Russia and the European Union. Throughout its history the city has always boasted a cosmopolitan air, with strong communities of émigrés from countries as diverse as Italy, France, Romania and Greece. Modern-day Odessa has more than one million residents and has industries that include metal working, ship building and oil refining, as well as it housing a naval base and a fishing fleet. Industry aside, visitors from around the world are drawn to Odessa by attractions such as the Potemkin Steps and the Odessa Opera and Ballet Theatre, as well as the Seventh-Kilometer Market, the largest outdoor market in Europe.
