Russian Post is preparing to launch an experiment on the remote sale of Russian wine
MOSCOW, November 23 – RIA Novosti. Russian Post is preparing to launch an experiment in the remote sale of wine: it has identified regions for storing wine and prepared equipment for shipping to pilot regions, the company’s press service told RIA Novosti.
Earlier on Wednesday, the newspaper Izvestiya reported that a trial could be launched on the online sale of domestic wine in Moscow and the region from November 2023, citing a bill from the Russian government. According to the document, alcohol can be purchased on the Russian Post website, and the company will start delivering products only 24 hours after order confirmation.
While preparing for the launch, we determined the regions to store wine in our logistics facilities, and prepared the equipment to provide transportation to the pilot regions. It was noted that the company could launch an experiment in remote selling of wine “when there are appropriate legislative changes”. “It will begin within the time period set by law,” the company said.
It was added that the company is actively working with professional market participants – winemakers, to “take into account all the features of operational processes, information exchange and other necessary parameters for launching the experiment.”
In addition, the company has developed an online showcase project that can be launched and integrated with government systems to verify products and the age of the buyer when regulatory changes take effect.
