Russian Post prepares for congestion

By the end of the year, Russian Post will launch a pilot project in St. Petersburg, opening round-the-clock parcel delivery points and arranging courier delivery.

At the first stage, round-the-clock delivery points for parcels will appear in large cities. If the project proves its effectiveness, the network will expand to other settlements. “The idea is very simple: people should receive the parcels that they have been waiting for so long at any time convenient for them,” said Alexei Skatin, deputy general director of the enterprise. "Only specialized projects work well, we want to make one for parcel mail."

The consumer will still have the opportunity to choose where he wants to receive his parcel - at the branch or at a XNUMX-hour point. Changes will not affect the cost of delivery.

With the development of online trading, the volume of international mail that arrives in Russia continues to grow. In the first half of 2013 alone, Russian Post processed more than 3 million international mail items or 137 tons per day. Traditionally, the peak period is expected on New Year's Eve. According to the estimates of the enterprise and online stores, in the 2013-2014 season, 200-250 tons of international mail will arrive in Russia daily, which is two times more than a year earlier.
