UPS has expanded its collect on delivery service (COD) so that it now covers some 400 cities in Russia. Under the COD system consumers pay the UPS driver directly for their goods.
Ivan Shatskikh, general director, UPS Russia, said: “After a period of thorough development, COD service is now up and running, in time for the ramp-up to the peak shipping season at the end of the year.”
The COD service is available for domestic shipments. Customers can choose to pay for their goods by cash or credit card. The COD service in Russia can be combined with a returns service.
