Volodymyr Kozak: avoiding double customs control for railroad transportation in containers – step in right direction

          Customs clearance for container railway transportation  in checkpoints was simplified. Correspondent order “On amendments to the decree of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine from 8th of April 2009 №381” was approved on the session of Government on the 19th of 2013.

          Approval of this act will allow to avoid the double procedure of passing goods, that are transported by containers through the state border of Ukraine in sea ports.” Proposed changes wil enable to implement pass and customs clearance of goods only once in containers in railway connection on the territory of container terminal of railway station “Odessa-Liski” on Odesska Railway’ – claimed Minister of infrastructure of Ukraine Volodymyr Kozak on the session of Ukrainian government.

         From the moment of pass and types of government control begin being valid for intermodal transportation of goods, that are transported in containers through the sea ports, will be implemented in this checkpoint.

Railroaders together with Minister of infrastructure of Ukraine  expect that adoption of an act will facilitate increase of cargo volumes transported in containers from checkpoints in Odessa, Illichivsk and Yuzhniy sea trade ports.

       As Minister of infrastructure of Ukraine  Volodymyr Kozak claimed   customs check of containers is implemented twice – in checkpoints in Odessa, Illichivsk and Yuzhniy sea ports and in control point “Odessa-Liski”. Besides, movement of goods between checkpoints of sea trade ports and control point “Odessa-Liski” is implemented with registration of customs regime transit and using customs declaration. All these factors decrease the effectiveness of handling such cargo in combined transportations.

         This decree will be in force since the day of official publication.
