With the suspension of air travel to and from the country, the Ukraine has lost its postal transport links. Slovenská pošta, a.s., uses overland transport links to send postal items to and, mainly, from the Ukraine, and Poczta Polska uses air mail.
At the moment, Slovenská pošta, a.s., is responsible for the transit of postal items from the Czech Republic, Austria, Slovenia, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Germany to the Ukraine. However, you can also find items from as far afield as Australia and Japan. In peacetime these countries used air transport to send their postal items to the Ukraine, however, this means of transport is very limited these days. Slovenská pošta, a.s., dispatches postal items to the Ukrainian city of Chop, where the exchange office of its Ukrainian postal partner is located. As the volume of transit postal items is now four times higher than it was before the outbreak of the war, these days it is necessary for Slovenská pošta, a.s. to despatch a 3.5T lorry full of postal items as often as twice a week.
Slovenská pošta, a.s., is highly appreciative of the selfless service of our colleagues from Ukrposhta (the Ukrainian postal service operator), who through their best efforts strive to provide the smoothest possible national and international postal service. Slovenská pošta, a.s., is making every possible effort to be an active and reliable partner to its Ukrainian colleagues.
