A state postal operator offering domestic and international postal services, as well as financial and courier services.
Russia Post is the national state postal operator providing a wide range of services, including domestic and international postal services, as well as financial and courier services. Each postal item is assigned a unique tracking number, playing a key role in monitoring the movement and status of the package.
The tracking system is particularly useful in resolving potential disputes with the seller, providing control over each stage of delivery, and informing both the sender and the recipient about the delivery status. International shipments can be sent as registered or unregistered, giving senders the choice based on their needs.
Tracking Russia Post shipments by the identification number is done through the Barcode Postal Identifier, which consists of 14 digits. This number includes information about the recipient`s post office, the month of barcode printing, the unique item number, and the check digit. It allows tracking the shipment at each stage, including acceptance at the post office, sorting, customs procedures, and delivery.
Additionally, tracking registered postal items is done through a fiscal receipt issued after payment for the forwarding service. This receipt contains the number of the registered postal item, serving as the identification number for tracking the status of the shipment. The first status, "Accepted at the post office," appears immediately after dispatch, ensuring instant tracking.
This tracking approach makes it not only an effective means of monitoring shipments but also a tool in resolving potential questions about the status, location, and compliance with delivery deadlines for postal items.
