Russian Railways opens electronic store for making purchases at SMEs

Russian Railways, which is one of the largest customers in Russia in terms of its number and volume of purchases, is improving and optimising all stages of its procurement activities.

As part of this ongoing policy, the Company is simplifying access to purchases from small and medium-sized enterprises.

To increase the transparency and efficiency of its purchasing activity on the website of the automated electronic trading system https://eshoprzd.ru/home, an electronic store for small volumes of purchases of up to 500,000 roubles including VAT has been launched.

The store is an electronic platform which makes for very simple interaction between customers and suppliers.

Access to the electronic store is free of charge, requiring only simple registration and enabling users to get started quickly.

To participate in procurement, suppliers just need to enter their price.

Suppliers can also upload their offers to the store to enable customers to find the best offers independently.

With the help of the new electronic platform, Russian Railways expects to attract domestic producers and small entrepreneurs, increase the transparency of transactions and tighten control over price policy with regard to the procurement of goods, work and services.
