Delivery from Hong Kong to Ukraine
To create the most efficient route, multimodal shipments can be formed with a combination of several types of vehicles along the route of the batch. Thus, logisticians manage to achieve a reduction in terms of time and cost savings for customers.
Hong Kong is a separate administrative region of China, which is one of the financial centers not only in this country and the Asian region, but throughout the world. The PRC still produces many consumer goods, which are in demand in almost all countries due to their low prices. Recently, however, the tendency to increase the export turnover of low-quality budget products is changing. Hong Kong is becoming a trading platform for new Chinese goods that compete with those from the United States and Europe.
Delivery of goods from Hong Kong to Ukraine includes the following product groups:
- computers and accessories
- household appliances and electronics
- digital devices and accessories
- other devices
- industrial machinery
- cosmetics and perfumery
- clothing and footwear (as well as fabrics)
- other products.
Wholesale purchases of goods from Hong Kong annually increase not only due to the growth of trade between manufacturers and entrepreneurs, but also due to the active involvement of individuals in the process. People buy various goods directly from factories and factories in China and Hong Kong at favorable prices. However, when working with a manufacturer directly, you need to be prepared for the fact that logistical issues will have to be solved independently. Suppliers rarely organize the delivery of goods to Ukraine on their own, therefore, to build a successful business, you need to understand the nuances of international cargo transportation and customs clearance. Often there are situations when the customer, due to ignorance of the specifics of trade with China, receives significant losses instead of the projected profit.
This can happen for several reasons:
- incorrect filling of the customs declaration
- lack of knowledge of the rules of packaging and labeling of certain types of products
- incorrect calculation of delivery times from Hong Kong to Ukraine (most often due to the lack of information about traditional Chinese holidays and long weekends)
- obtaining low quality goods instead of positions with the declared parameters (you need to communicate with the manufacturer based on the experience of communication with sellers from the PRC, who have specific differences in mentality from Western entrepreneurs).
AF-Group specialists have extensive experience working with Chinese suppliers, and know how to build mutually beneficial relationships between the seller and the buyer. Over the years, the company’s employees have learned to conduct effective negotiations even with the toughest businessmen from Hong Kong, so clients can count on not only logistics services, but also assistance in obtaining the most favorable conditions when signing a contract.

Delivery of goods from Hong Kong to Ukraine from AF-Group
Many manufacturers from China and Hong Kong do not offer international cargo transportation services for their products to Ukraine. Organizational issues for the transportation of the order from the supplier lie on the shoulders of the buyers. Taking into account the serious specific features of the legislation in the field of customs declaration, an independent solution of issues with customs can become a serious obstacle to the creation of trade.
If a large business can employ specialists in legal support of foreign economic activity, then medium and small, as well as novice entrepreneurs, face serious problems when trying to organize document circulation on their own. Incorrect filling of the declaration or errors in the labeling of goods lead to a long delay of the container at the border or to the seizure of the entire batch. That is why it is recommended to contact the professional logisticians of the AF-Group company.

Delivery options from Hong Kong to Ukraine
Shipping by sea in a container (FCL)
For a large business that handles large orders and transports large quantities, the best option would be to order containers for full load (FCL) and shipment by sea using shipping lines. Depending on the specifics of the cargo: its weight, dimensions and other characteristics, a 20-foot or 40-foot container is selected. These varieties have different volumes and hold 10 and 22 standard pallets, respectively. The cost of such transportation will be one of the most affordable on the market. The cost of transporting one unit of goods will be the most profitable, however, one should take into account a rather long “logistic leverage”, averaging about 30 days.
Groupage cargo transportation from Hong Kong (LCL)
For small businesses and start-up entrepreneurs who cannot immediately purchase large wholesale lots, the option of forming a groupage cargo (LCL) is suitable. In case of partial loading, the client pays only for the actually occupied area in the container, and the rest of the volume is filled with the same small orders from other customers from Ukraine. Thus, thanks to the consolidation of several small wholesale orders, it is possible to create a convenient working format for starting cooperation with Hong Kong without serious financial investments. However, it is worth noting that the price when ordering the delivery of a consolidated batch is calculated at a higher rate than when the container is fully loaded (due to the costs of logistics, assembly, storage and joint loading). And if the consignment takes 50% or more of the total volume, then it is easier to rent a whole container for sea transportation to Ukraine.
Air delivery to Ukraine
The fastest shipping method from Hong Kong is by air. This method is available when ordering products with a total weight of 50 kg. The delivery time, taking into account the paperwork and delivery to the customer’s address, is 2-5 days. Naturally, additional payment will be required for the prompt processing of the order. Air delivery has one relative disadvantage – it’s high cost. However, in the case when the timing is much more important than the price, this method of transportation is the only possible one. You should also note the increased requirements for the nature of the items (there are certain restrictions) and packaging (it is required to pack the batch in accordance with the regulated standards).
Land transport: railroad and road transport
Delivery of goods by rail and trucks can be both part of a multimodal service and an independent method of transportation. Often, such shipments have similar terms with sea freight, however, the cost of delivery from Hong Kong to Ukraine may be slightly higher due to the specifics of certain directions along the route. The company’s logisticians will offer you the best option, taking into account all the specifics of the order. Just contact the representatives to clarify the conditions and prices.
