Digitalization has allowed Russian Post to reduce delivery time between cities to 4 days

Last year, the delivery time at Russian Post decreased by about half, to four days. This was helped by the digitalization and automation of processes, said Pavel Sergeev, deputy director for e-commerce in the Volga macro-region of Russian Post, at the international economic summit "Russia-Islamic World: KazanSummit 2021".

"Our logistics platform through digitalisation and automation has enabled us to reduce the average delivery time of items between Russian cities from 7-8 days to four days in 2020. "We understand that this is not the limit, and in the near future, as part of our cooperation with VTB, Russian Post will open more than 30 logistics centers in different Russian cities," he said.

Recently, as the representative of the company reminded, a large logistics center was opened in Khabarovsk.

It has become known earlier that 2.3 billion rubles were invested into construction and equipping of the Khabarovsk center. It is planned to reach its design capacity by the fourth quarter of this year.

The international economic summit of Russia and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member states "Russia-Islamic World: KazanSummit-2021" is held in Kazan from 28 to 30 July. The summit aims to strengthen trade, economic, scientific, technical, social and cultural ties between Russia and the OIC member states.

The leitmotif of the Forum in 2021 is conscious consumption; the key topics of the business programme include partner finance, the halal industry, youth diplomacy, medicine, sport, creative industries, export development, entrepreneurship and investment. The event also hosts the Russia Halal Expo and the Mechanical Engineering Cluster Forum.

In pre-crisis 2019, the summit was attended by 3.5 thousand delegates from 72 countries and 38 regions of Russia. This year, more than 2,500 people from 60 countries are participating in the summit.
