The peak faced at the end of the year and was associated with the new year holidays. Now the "Mail" is waiting for a new wave of shipments - a series of celebrations to follow and people to congratulate their relatives and friends in time.

In 2012 by the "Federal Post Service of Russia" the Russians received from abroad about 30 million postal items, most of which with  attachments either. It has exceeded expectations. Before New year holidays "FPS" had predicted 21.6 million of parcels, small packets and Express shipments from abroad during 2012. "That is twice as much as in 2011, and half as high again as forecasted", - reported the press-service of the enterprise. Proceeding from the fact that  average cost of purchase in foreign Internet-stores amounted to 2.7 thousand roubles, Russian consumers spent about 80 billion rubles on goods from foreign retailers.

The share of postal items from China to Russia has grown more than in 2 times - from 8%to 17%. In 2012,"According to preliminary calculations the Russians received from China only registered small packets of about 1.5 million. The most significant growth of post traffic from China to Russia was in the last two months of 2012", - reported the "FPSl".

In the "Mail of Russia" the growth of postal items from abroad is tied with the popularization of remote trade first. "70% of inbound shipments from abroad make the goods ordered in Internet-shops", - explained the press-service of "FPS". "The demand for Internet-products stimulates the development of the Internet and the active use of a population of plastic cards for payment of goods and services. Before the Internet-trade was used by the residents of Moscow and St. Petersburg, now it is joined by the cities in Russian regions. People have the access to the resources that provide them a greater choice of unique goods which are not available and prices in Russia are significantly higher", - added the representative of the press-service of FPS. Play their role low postal rates for sending by international mail. According to statistics of "FPS" 69% of Russian consumers receive orders in the period from 2 weeks to 2 months from the moment of the payment of the purchase, and almost 1\3 of consumers  (28%) receive orders more quickly.
