In 2014, mini-branches of the Russian Post will open in shopping centers in Moscow. The company decided to launch a new format after it carried out a pilot project: it started in the capital six months ago. Then seven postal stalls appeared in shopping and business centers.
Mini-offices will allow not only using postal services, but also issuing credit cards and insurance, repaying loans, paying for cellular communications, Internet and housing and communal services, buying railroad and air tickets. Now of the seven mini-branches "Russian Post" has left the five most profitable, and two - in Rublevka and in Lefortovo - closed. According to the company, the most popular in Moscow are postal stalls in hypermarkets and large business centers in Moscow City.
In 2013, the retail turnover of Russian Post, according to its strategy, should be 15 billion rubles, or 10,4% of the FSUE’s total forecasted revenue for 2013. Next year, the turnover will increase to 17 billion rubles, which will be 10,6% of the planned revenue.
We also recall that at the end of November, Russian Post opened the first functional logistics center in Vnukovo, thanks to which New Year's mail congestion should be a thing of the past.
