Confidence in tomorrow

As mentioned earlier, on the territory of the Kyiv river port in 2017, by the decree of the Cabinet of Ministers, a separate checkpoint “Kyiv” (border crossing) was created, which makes it impossible to reduce the customs control zone, since with respect to goods arriving at the border crossing “Kyiv”, it is necessary to carry out customs clearance.

What else worth to know about the customs terminal?

The uniqueness of the LOCATION

The uniqueness of the Kyiv River Port customs control zone lies in the possibility of processing goods arriving by three types of transport: freight, rail and river, no cargo terminal can boast of such an opportunity.


The location of the Customs Control Zone on the right bank on the border with the left bank, near the center of the capital, makes it possible to quickly deliver goods throughout the city, even during rush hour.

River cargo

There is a separate checkpoint “Kyiv” (border crossing) on the pier, which allows you to receive cargo of international river traffic and to issue temporary import or export of yachts flying the flags of different countries of the world.

TERMINAL’s capabilities

The ability to carry out multimodal transportation using the river, railway wagons and freight transport – if the specifics of your cargo or logistics does not allow delivery by one mode of transport, we can organize multimodal transportation, for example, when the cargo arrives by rail, we reload it to a truck, you can also use river transport.

Import clearance without going to the customs terminal in EA or AA mode, what is the difference?

Clearance in the EA mode is the submission of a preliminary customs declaration with full filling of the data for the possibility of a complete release of goods after moving the goods across the border. That is, in the EA mode, clearance can take place inside the customs office, but without the vehicle entering the customs control zone. Please note that excisable goods cannot be processed in this mode.

The clearance in AA mode foresees the clearance of cargo at the border right at the checkpoint, which is successfully done by our company.

Import clearance without going to the customs terminal?

Import clearance without arriving at the terminal foresees clearance in EA mode, which in turn is the submission of a preliminary declaration with full filling of the data for the possibility of a complete release of goods after the goods have been moved across the border. The Customs Code foresees restrictions regarding the clearance of excisable goods in this regime; they are issued only upon arrival at the terminal.

What is CCZ?

CCZ (the customs control zone) is regulated by Chapter 48 of the Customs Code of Ukraine – this is a specially equipped area in which goods are kept under customs control to carry out customs formalities with them.

Why should the cargo go to the customs control zone, and not leave immediately for unloading?

According to the legislation of Ukraine, all export and import goods are subject to customs clearance, specifically the customs control zone and is intended for such business operations.

Why is there a fee for entering the CCZ?

The customs control zone, as a rule, is located on the territory of the cargo terminal, which is privately or jointly owned. The legal entity has a number of signed business and administrative agreements with the customs administration.

To obtain the CCZ status, the cargo terminal must fulfill certain conditions before the customs authority in order to ensure the stable and safe operation of the entire business process, starting with the organization of the work of loaders and ending with customs inspectors, respectively – on the balance of the cargo terminal there must be special equipment and premises for implementation these procedures.

Who is responsible for the safety of cargo at CCZ?

The owner of the cargo terminal is directly responsible for the safety of cargo in the CCZ, his tasks include ensuring uninterrupted video surveillance, checkpoints and organizing the security of the CCZ.

Which customs terminal is better to use in Kyiv?

Considering the large traffic jams in Kyiv, from the point of view of logistics, it is best to use the services of the customs terminal, which is closest to the location of your warehouse or the place of unloading of your already cleared cargo, or which has a good transport interchange. But for us and our clients, this is a secondary criterion, why?

The primary and most important criterion is the ecosystem for customs clearance of cargo, so that you do not twist your hands in the tariff department, contraband department does not tell you that a box of chocolates is contraband, or because of advertising materials that your suppliers can give you once a year, because in Europe this is the level of the norm, and as a result, you fall under the protocol and even confiscation of cargo, etc.

It is enough just to declare your mistakes or your partner suppliers, and pay reasonable taxes on this, not bribes.

We have clients who go from Odesa to customs clearance in Kyiv and then return to unloading in Odesa, so the position of traffic jams and a comfortable location is in second place exactly on the bottom line, especially for experienced importers.

Yes, we are client-oriented, yes, the interests of the client are at the forefront, yes, the portrait of our client is a white import, yes – you will not find anything here (for those who like to twist their hands this message), we are for paying taxes and for fair games. The one who does nothing is not mistaken.
