From tomorrow (15 June), Ukrainians will once again be able to order goods from the AliExpress online store as Ukrainian national postal operator Ukrposhta and private postal and courier company Nova Poshta resume delivery services for the company.
Before the war, Ukrainian customers ordered more than 30 million parcels from AliExpress per year. AliExpress, owned by the Alibaba Group, is made up of small businesses in China and other locations, such as Singapore, that offer products to international online buyers.
Yuriy Benevitskiy, CEO of Nova Poshta Global, said, “This is the most anticipated delivery recovery that Ukrainians have been waiting for. We have held dozens of meetings with our partner to assure them that we are working to the usual schedule and have already resumed our pre-war speed. So now users can again order the delivery of goods from AliExpress to a convenient branch or post office of Nova Poshta. To do this, you only need to specify the AliExpress Standard Shipping option and select the nearest working branch/post office on the map.”
According to Ukrposhta, AliExpress orders will be shipped from China by charter flights in transit via Latvia Post, and then delivered to Ukraine.
