OREANDA-NEWS Since September, the Chinese trading platform AliExpress has launched for Russian customers the ability to deliver orders from different suppliers in one package.

The service will be available for free with a total order of more than $5.

Until now, each of the goods purchased at the same time was delivered separately and at different time.

AliExpress expects that the innovation will reduce delivery time by a half, especially in medium and small cities, where it reach 30 days or more. And also it will significantly increase the average check order, which now is approximately $9. In addition, the site hopes to reduce the number of outstanding orders by half. Consolidation of shipments is beneficial for the company itself, because it will reduce logistics costs, market participants believe.
