Deutsche Post DHL (DPDHL) and Russian Post are to expand their cooperation in the area of international parcel shipments between Russia and Germany.
CEOs of the two organisations, Frank Appel of DPDHL and Dmitry Strashnov of Russian Post, signed the agreement in Bonn today.
The agreement comes in response to the rising parcel volumes that come from the boom in international ecommerce.
DHL parcels destined for Russia will now be handed over to Russian Post in Berlin which will then transport them to Russia and deliver them to their recipients.
Shipments to Russia are now simplified for customers of DPDHL through this agreement. Russian Post can better use its network with the growing parcel volumes from Germany.
“Through the expansion of our cooperation with Russian Post, our customers will benefit from even better quality and greater reliability with regard to delivery times,” says Frank Appel, CEO of Deutsche Post DHL Group.
“We are thereby meeting the key requirements of the international mail-order business and further enhancing our position as market leader in the high-growth e-commerce segment.”
The General Director of FSUE Russian Post Dmitry Strashnov pointed out that the development of the E-Commerce market demands new logistic solutions.
“The cooperation between the Russian Post and Deutsche Post DHL brings the logistics of cross-border trade in Europe to a new level. It reduces the delivery time and the quality of the service for the end consumer”, added Mr. Strashnov.
In addition to the cooperation on parcel deliveries, the companies are also planning to collaborate on the international shipment of letters and mailed advertising material.
