The safety of cargo transportation widely impacts the economy and ecology of the state and region. This article aims to detail the legal issues related to transporting goods in Ukraine. We have taken into account various risks associated with the movement of goods in Ukraine. We have described the dangers of physical impact on people and the impact on the nature of accidents with dangerous cargo. We have summarized the possibilities of adapting the risk management methodology to the realities of cargo transportation in Ukraine. After analyzing the safety problems of hazardous and oversized loads transported in Ukraine, we concluded that it is necessary to eliminate inconsistencies in legal documents and the discordance between them and the non-compliance with the norms of technical progress. We also stressed the need for Ukraine to comply with Directive 2008/68/EC in the framework of the European integration process.
