Shipping to Kiev?

I would like to ship a 2 lb. package to Kiev from the United States using UPS or Fed Ex....Is it possible to ship it to the UPS or Fed Ex location in Kiev and then have the recipient pick it up at the Kiev location using identification. If so is this a reliable method to make sure that the recipient receives the package? ____Thank You

As far as I know, FedEx uses local company http://www.elin.kiev.ua/ as local agent. Not sure whether it would it be convenient for recipient to take package from their warehouse but both companies can deliver it right to receiver.

Hi dc_al_al,

I’m not sure if I get your question correctly. Do you mean that you don’t want (or it’s not possible for you to arrange) a door-to-door courier delivery (the usual UPS style, for instance)?

According to the companies’ web-sites, both UPS http://www.ups.com/ and FedEx http://fedex.com/us/ make deliveries to Ukraine. UPS even has its local offices here, including in Kyiv http://www.ups-ukraine.com/

Haven’t ever dealt with FedEx, but UPS always delivers us packages directly to the office, so I guess we have never even checked the option of picking them up at UPS office. All our senders have to do is to indicate actual address (not post box) and contact person’s name and phone number. The delivery status is easy to track via courier’s web-site; quite reliable.

Don’t forget to check the company’s web-site for the delivery terms and conditions, including some export-import specifics and limits.
