“Mail of Russia” there are opportunities to create a trading platform, but it is unlikely to become a competitor to Alibaba, the head of the company Dmitry Strashnov.
UJANG (China), 16 Dec. “Mail of Russia” considers the possibility of creating trading platforms for the promotion of Russian products abroad, but it is unlikely to become a full-fledged online platform and will be able to compete with such large companies, like Alibaba, told reporters the head of the company Dmitry Strashnov.
“Think of us as a logistics channel that may be of interest to any players, including Russian and Chinese. We are a kind of guide that can catalyze this process by offering some additional services, but hardly “Mail of Russia” will become, relatively speaking, the Internet platform, it is unlikely that we will become a competitor to Alibaba or someone else,” said Strashnov.
He noted that the subject matter of the sale and promotion of goods is not a matter of “mail of Russia”. However, these opportunities the company has given its presence throughout the Russian Federation. In addition, recently discussed the issues of simplification of export of goods from Russia. “Mail it will play a rather serious role,” — said the head of the company.
“Certainly, create, put, trading platform on the platform of “mail of Russia” could contribute to this project. We are currently in pilot mode looking at how the platform of “mail of Russia” can this format support,” he said, adding that it is expedient to talk about the platform that will work on promotion of the Russian goods abroad. “We are open to suggestions,” said Strashnov.
“Cannot be “post” as an exclusive channel and exclusive area, of course. I think that from the point of view of some IT solutions, logistics points, we can contribute to it, but I still think the main factor will be the demand for Russian goods on the international market,” he added.
