The signed cooperation agreement with logistics provider SPSR Express will help Russian suppliers to register for and create online stores enabling to place products on B2C and B2B web portals worldwide. It will be integrated with major ecommerce websites such as eBay, Amazon and JD.
Besides supply chain and logistic support, consulting will for example also take place in international product adaptation, patents and intellectual property protection, marketing, analysis, loans and guarantees as well as insurance.
“Our involvement in this collaboration is about much more than simply shipping goods to buyers abroad”, says Vladimir Solodkin, SPSR Express Director General. “SPSR Express will also provide a wide range of additional services. We will help manufacturers identify promising niches for exporting their goods, assist with sales and promoting goods on international e-commerce platforms, and advise on matters concerning customs. SPSR Express views the export market as a highly promising area for growth. Indeed, in the coming years, exports via e-commerce are forecast to grow by 30–60%, and be worth at least USD 3.9 billion by 2020”.
