The Russian Post underwent several reforms according to the position and philosophies of the federal government. The current form of Russian Post was founded in 2002, but the postal service has a history dating back to 1714, serving the needs of the Russian people since the Russian empire. Currently, the company process 434.6 million shipments per year through its 120,000 couriers and 17,000 postal vehicles.

Russian Post offers complete geographical coverage in Russia, especially for International shipments. The rules for international imports in the country are stringent, and few carriers are allowed to operate within the region.

The carrier also offers PUDO delivery mode, which stands for ‘Pick up, drop off. This allows businesses to provide their customers with door-to-door or door-to-box delivery options.

This allows for a more flexible payment and delivery option for ecommerce businesses as Cash-on-delivery payments still dominate the Russian markets. Apart from these services, it also provides fulfillment solutions to European businesses to establish a more efficient supply chain that can cater to the needs of the Russian market.
Despite being one of the oldest postal services, the company does provide technologically advanced features like Shipment tracking that allow modern ecommerce businesses to enhance their customer experience.
