The Russian retailing company is developing the express delivery project in partnership with Yandex.Eda service.

Florian Jansen – Magnit Deputy CEO and Executive Director said: “The launch of the service in the regions is an important step in developing our own delivery service and creating an appealing omnichannel proposition. We have started with an express delivery service based on our convenience stores, since we see that it is the fastest growing segment showing the highest sales.

“This year, we also plan to roll out to the regions our regular delivery, which is more geared towards stock-up purchases from Magnit’s large-format stores. This will allow us to satisfy all consumer needs and deliver fresh and high-quality goods to millions of customers in various cities in a way that fits them most.”

Presently, Magnit runs seven online delivery projects – independently and in cooperation with partners. Its e‑commerce services cover more than 1,300 of its stores in 58 regions and 94 cities.
