Baku, Azerbaijan, Sep. 23
By Huseyn Veliyev - Trend:
Delivery time of goods purchased by Russian and Ukrainian consumers through the electronic trading platform Azexport can be significantly reduced, Azexport told Trend.
Proposals have been sent to the postal and courier services of Russia and Ukraine, according to the company.
"Azerbaijani postal operator Azerpoct is responsible for deliveries on behalf of Azerbaijan. Cooperation of postal operators will allow reducing the delivery time of purchased items to three - four days. Currently, deliveries take about a month," the company said.
According to the current procedures, after the company transfers the ordered item to Azerpoct, it takes 10-15 days for the postal operator to transfer the item to another country. After the order is delivered to another country, it takes five to six days for the local postal operator to deliver the item.
In case, if Azerpoct delivers the item to the country of destination within a day, the total delivery time can be reduced four times.
