NLMK Group, a global steel company, opens access to an e-commerce website for SMEs. A hi-tech online marketplace is now available at https://nlmk.shop/.
NLMK Group has been operating an e-commerce platform since 2012, based on the “Client-Info” RMS system. Access to the platform is open to large clients that have long-term established relations with NLMK. Approximately 60% of all orders in Russia and the CIS are currently coming through “Client-Info”.
Other buyers who did not previously have the opportunity to use the e-commerce service could now access the online store. The store is a fully functional online self-servicing system that enables buyers to place orders for products of up to 20 tons, eliminating the need for additional processes outside the system.
Clients can use the e-marketplace to purchase more than 17,000 SKUs, including long products and metal wares. The service supports the possibility of sorting products by technical parameters or purchasing steel from manufacturer warehouses.
The e-marketplace has a simple and user-friendly interface, enabling easy and swift order placement in a variety of formats: by weight or by number of SKUs, as well as selection of preferred delivery options, packaging and labeling.
The e-marketplace offers the buyers a transparent pricing process based on the cost of delivery, additional services, and discounts. Both registered and non-registered customers can view product prices.
Ilya Guschin, NLMK Group Vice President, Sales, said: “Extending e-marketplace access to SMEs is a new step in the development of NLMK Group’s e-commerce. The site will enable us to offer convenient services to various customer groups: construction professionals, assembling companies, manufacturers and consumers of steel structures.” (NLMK/Ukrainian metal)
