Export to Russia

Russia map

Founded in 1996, we have warehousing, offices, infrastructure and a lot of experience...

We make this infrastructure available to our clients who want to sell to Russia, the biggest country in the world; a country forecast to be Europe’s biggest consumer market by 2020.

Our clients get unlimited access to our infrastructure and experience, as well as a Moscow based sales manager. These resources can be used for prospecting, research, building relationships, visiting trade fairs, arranging meetings and programmes, etc. By talking directly to buyers, you can choose the right distributor or agent in your own time, support existing distributors, or if you so wish, work independently of them. You can control the distributor rather than the other way around. We call this service “The Footprint”. If you’d like to speak directly to companies that have increased sales using this route to market, just ask us

The main advantages of this approach include:

  • Bureaucracy is reduced to zero.
  • An objective presence in Russia to complement and control whatever work you may develop with distributors.
  • Your management is freed up to develop other markets whilst Russia grows in the background. 
  • The ability to sell for Russian Roubles, whilst receiving the profit in the hard currency of your choice, (a possibility which remains closed to most companies).
  • Rapid entry and exit strategy. You only continue paying if your business is growing.
  • For your peace of mind, we welcome a conversation between yourselves and our existing clients.
  • A Russian local speaking Russian to Russians in Russia increases effective communication.
