During the CPM 2019 exhibition held in Moscow in September, ART Delivery experts presented a solution that will allow importers to avoid a sharp increase in costs following the introduction of mandatory clothing coding in Russia.
All companies involved in the clothing industry are concerned about a potential hike in costs after the introduction of mandatory coding. At the same time, analysts say that demand for clothing is declining in Russia, primarily due to the shrinking real income of consumers. The test period for clothing coding will end on November 30, and the registration of clothing market participants is due to begin on December 1, 2019. According to the Russian government's draft decree on the rules of coding for consumer goods, the coding of clothing is to become mandatory as of July 1, 2020.
ART Delivery has designed a coding process that will allow importers and retailers to manage their costs following the introduction of mandatory coding.
Generally speaking, goods can be coded at:
- the manufacturing site
- the supplier's warehouse during packaging
- the consolidation warehouse
- the customs warehouse.
