Выбрать страницу
The war in Ukraine affected the entire economy of the country and made significant adjustments to the logistics infrastructure, including international cargo transportation. Due to constant threats of missile strikes, airports in Ukraine are closed and air traffic is completely absent. Therefore, logistics companies had to urgently change schemes and routes for delivering the most necessary goods. In this regard, the load on railway and road transport has increased significantly. But there are certain categories of cargo that require very fast delivery, for example, goods that have a very limited shelf life (medical products). In such cases, logisticians of the Grand Logistics Company organize air transportation of urgent cargo to Ukraine, using multimodal transportation schemes, when several modes of transport are involved at once - most often air and road.

In what cases is air delivery of goods to Ukraine used?

Cargo transportation by air has always been in high demand, as it is the fastest way to get the necessary goods. This is especially true for products that are delivered from Asian countries and other continents, in particular from the USA, Australia, Canada, Japan, China and many others. With the beginning of Russian aggression, air traffic over the territory of Ukraine was closed. At the same time, the need for urgent cargo has increased sharply. Therefore, GLC employees made every effort to quickly develop new logistics schemes and supply routes, using air transport in conjunction with rail and road transport. This is done through airports in European countries - Poland, Germany, Turkey, Romania, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria and some others.

Advantages of air delivery of goods to Ukraine during the war

The use of air transport in combination with road, sea or rail in war conditions has a number of important advantages. Very often, this is the only possible way to deliver urgent cargo to the country that is necessary for the defense industry (high-tech components for various systems, spare parts, parts and components for equipment, and so on), as well as medicines, medical supplies and much more.

In addition, this method of cargo transportation is actively used by private entrepreneurs and commercial enterprises whose activities are directly related to suppliers from other countries geographically located at a considerable distance from Ukraine (for example, China, South Korea, Japan, Australia, Canada, the USA and others), and transportation of products by other means may take from several months to six months.

How is air delivery of cargo to Ukraine carried out under wartime conditions?

The logistics chain for transporting goods to Ukraine by air during the war is as follows.

  1. The products arrive at the airport of one of the European countries. After unloading, the goods are placed in a temporary storage warehouse.
  2. Preparation of the necessary documentation, in particular - the T1 bill of lading and the customs declaration (preliminary PD, PP or EA) and the general declaration of arrival.
  3. Loading of goods into vehicles and delivery to customs.
  4. Customs clearance of transported products and delivery to the recipient.
