The Convention mean that goods can move much more easily between the EU and the so-called Common Transit Countries (Norway, Iceland, Switzerland, North Macedonia, Serbia, Turkey, UK and Ukraine).

Customs transit procedures between Ukraine and the EU will from now on be much simpler and more efficient.
