Federal Customs Service has allowed carriers to conduct rapid clearance on the roster , and not each parcel separately.
This was after a meeting with the leadership of ” Russian Post” , FCS and DHL deputy head of the Ministry of Communications Michael Evraev . He explained that the right to draw on inventories departure now has a “Russian Post “.
Within the next month clearance parcels will be conducted only on paper registers , then – electronically . This measure among other things will reduce the documents required for registration of express shipments.
In addition, the parties decided that the price of departure duty-free import to the Russian Federation will be set at around 150 euros , weight – 10 kg. Now Russia can be imported duty free parcels of up to 1000 euros and weighing up to 31 kilograms per month. If you exceed the limit fee will be 30 % , but at least 4 euro per 1 kilogram. In 2012, Russia imported about 7 million of such parcels amounting to 2.8 billion euros.
In late January of this year, a number of express carriers in the Association Express Carriers ( ASEP ) – DPD, ” Pony Express “, DHL, TNT, UPS, FedEx – reported that they plan to stop delivering packages to the Russians. The decision was motivated by the fact that stricter rules on customs made it impossible to maintain the previous level of service.
