One of the largest Russian players in the delivery market, SberLogistics (part of the Sber ecosystem), has announced plans to increase the number of parcel terminals. The company intends to increase the number of devices in Russia to almost 11 thousand, but the main growth will occur in the metropolitan regions. In regions such as Belgorod, Bryansk, Kursk, as well as in the Far East, some northern regions and Siberia, an increase in the number of parcel terminals is not expected.

Information about SberLogistics’ parcel terminals and plans to expand the network was published in July in the company’s procurement documentation in the “Purchase Contour” system.

According to SberLogistics data, the company currently operates 9,498 parcel terminals in Russia and plans to increase their number to 10,911, or by 15%. The document does not specify a planning period, but notes that the data is relevant for a three-year maintenance period for the equipment. The final figures on the number of parcel terminals may be adjusted.

“The planned quantity is indicated, which can be increased or decreased, and is not guaranteed by the customer,” the procurement materials say.

SberLogistics has the most ambitious expansion plans in Moscow, the Moscow region and St. Petersburg. The number of parcel terminals in the capital is expected to increase by 1.7 times – from 807 to 1,406, in the Moscow region by 1.3 times (from 674 to 844), in St. Petersburg by 1.6 times (from 385 to 645).

A slight increase is planned in the Sverdlovsk region (from 520 to 535 parcel terminals), in the Rostov region (from 301 to 306), in the Krasnodar region (from 403 to 428), in Bashkiria and Tatarstan (from 255 to 275 and 285 units), respectively.

No growth is forecast in such regions as the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, Yaroslavl, Tula and Tomsk regions, Sakhalin and Kamchatka, the Republic of Tyva, Volgograd, Belgorod, Bryansk and Kursk regions.

RB.RU has sent a request to SberLogistics.

In 2021, SberLogistics estimated the number of parcel terminals in its network at 8 thousand units. The company reported that it works with SberMegaMarket, Read-Gorod, Sunlight, Detsky Mir and other networks. SberLogistics noted that in the Moscow region the number of shipments and service turnover in 2021 doubled compared to the same period last year.

According Data informationThe number of parcel terminals in Russia is about 38 thousand. The largest players are SberlLogistics, Cainiao, 5Post, Russian Post, Ozon and Halva. However, the growth rate of the number of parcel terminals has slowed down. The share of orders delivered through lockers is not as large as that delivered through pick-up points or by courier: it accounts for about 3% of the total number of orders in Russian online commerce, or 154 million orders by 2023.

According to Data Insight, self-pickup remains the most popular delivery method, but only 4% of surveyed customers prefer to pick up the package at a locker, provided the online store can choose which delivery method to use. Analysts estimate that most Russians prefer to pick up their goods at a pick-up point at the market.

Data Insight has estimated the volume of the Russian e-commerce market in 2023 at 7.9 trillion rubles and a growth of 48%. According to analysts, in 2024 sales in the Russian e-commerce market will reach 10.2 trillion rubles, an increase of 30%, and the number of completed orders will exceed 7 billion (+42%).
