You may order the full circle service «door-to-door» (including transportation both ways, customs clearance in the countries of departure and destination, handling on-site) using our partner network all over the world.
There are strong advantages of this way of cooperation:
Our partners know the most of specific issues of operation with Ukraine;
Professional assistance in your native language while preparing a shipment;
One contract with one company covers all services for your exhibition cargo.
We will connect you with the local partner in your country once you apply to us.
You are welcome to establish direct operation with SK-EXPO. In this case you must:
Follow our shipping instructions and recommendations, as well as to be responsible for correct issue of shipping documents;
Order by yourself & pay for the transportation to Ukraine and back;
Be ready to pay for our service.
If you prepare the shipment by yourself, we will provide all our experience to assist you. We recommend you to go through the following logical steps:
All road-freight must arrive to the customs terminal in Kiev 2 full working days before the date of delivery to the exhibition booth (Kiev Central Specialized Customs House doesn’t work on weekends and holidays). Arrival of road-freight is the moment of truck entrance to the customs terminal in Kiev.
All air-freight must arrive to Kiev International Airport Borispol (KBP) 5 full working days before the date of delivery to the exhibition booth (Kiev Central Specialized Customs House doesn’t work on weekends and holidays). Arrival of air-freight is the moment, when shipping documents become available for processing at the information desk of Kiev International Airport «BORISPOL» (KBP).
All sea-freight arriving to the ports of Ukraine must be reloaded to the truck(s) at shipper’s expense and delivered to the customs terminal in Kiev 2 full working days before the date of delivery to the exhibition booth (Kiev Central Specialized Customs House doesn’t work on weekends and holidays). Arrival of sea-freight is the moment of container truck entrance to the customs terminal in Kiev.
Besides, customs clearance is carried out at Martusovka village, Moyseeva, 72, from Monday to Friday, from 9:00 to 17:00.
Customs clearance on weekend and holidays is possible only with the special order (request 14 days before) in exclusive cases and with extra charges to be paid.
Please, make your date estimations with reference to the Ukrainian official holidays, when customs clearance is not provided. It is a law in Ukraine that if a particular holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, then the following Monday is an official holiday. We have provided a list of the eight main national holidays celebrated in Ukraine each year to help you make better cargo arrangements.
Before your cargo had moved for Kiev it is necessary to receive a confirmation that SK-EXPO is ready to make customs clearance for your goods. For this we have to obtain some information about your exhibits:
kind of goods;
weight per article position (net & gross);
value per article position in USD or EUR;
regime of importation (temporary or final).
The best way of letting us know about these issues is to fill-in proforma-invoice (which is an invoice and packing list combined in one document).
After proforma-invoice is filled-in, please, be so kind to send it by e-mail to: email@example.com.
During one working day you will get an answer with:
service contract to be signed;
calculation of costs;
proforma-invoice checked & ready for shipping or comments on it.
!NB! While shipping by sea all the originals (bills of lading, proforma-invoices, certificates of origin, safety certificates and other) must be delivered directly to the agent in the Ukrainian port of arrival. Port processing of cargo without originals is impossible.
All the pages of pre-alert must be sent to SK-EXPO
by fax: +380 (44) 526-94-68
or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you send a pre-alert, please, wait for our confirmation.
If our confirmation is required urgently, please, call us.
Confirmation from SK-EXPO means that freight can start.
