The Severstal Market online store has started export deliveries to the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) from the warehouses of Severstal Distribution JSC since October this year. Deliveries to Kazakhstan and Belarus have already been made, consumers from Armenia and Kyrgyzstan also have the opportunity to make purchases at Severstal Market.
Russian metal consumers have been purchasing rolled metal products from warehouses at Severstal Market for more than three years. During this time, the functionality of the online store has become truly user-friendly, so the demand for online purchases is growing, including the need for the use of the service by consumers from the EAEU countries.
Severstal Distribution Company annually sells about 15-20 thousand tons of rolled metal to the EAEU countries, while a fifth of customers are interested in online purchases. For export deliveries, there are more complex requirements for document circulation and preliminary verification of the possibility of a transaction than for deliveries to the domestic market. We have developed and implemented a delivery scheme in Severstal Market, in which all export transactions and customers are checked using special tools for concluding a contract and a transaction passport, and after shipment, a package of documents is created for registration on the customs website, ”said the sales director of JSC“ Severstal Distribution "VladislavPalitsin.
At the moment, consumers from the Republic of Armenia, the Republic of Belarus, the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Kyrgyz Republic have the opportunity to buy rolled metal products through the online store from the warehouses of SeverstalDistribution JSC branches with which these clients have concluded contracts. Expansion of export contracts for all branches of the company is planned in 2021, thus the customer will be able to receive metal from different warehouses of Severstal Distribution JSC under one contract.
