Parallel import: will it solve the problem of shortage of auto parts?


As you know, the Government of the Russian Federation legalized the parallel import of goods, mainly cars and spare parts, which can be imported into the country without the permission of the copyright holder. Experts interviewed by the agency "AUTOSTAT" told whether this measure would help solve the problem of shortage of spare parts for warranty and service maintenance of the existing vehicle fleet in Russia, and how much the risks of distribution of counterfeit parts increase in connection with this. These and many other issues will be discussed at the automotive business forum "Parallel imports: cars, components, spare parts", which will be held by the AUTOSTAT agency on August 16th in Moscow.

According to Denis Migal, the CEO of the Fresh Auto car dealership network, in July 2022, the shortage of spare parts began to be felt in almost all Russian service centers. At the same time, in terms of components, parallel imports work more efficiently than in auto retail. "Parallel import of spare parts will not solve the problem of warranty repairs. It is unlikely that it will turn out like in the aviation industry - to buy donors for further disassembly. But this is a look at now - perhaps, if there are tightening in the supply of spare parts, and then we will be able to observe this in our services. However, I believe that a thaw will come in the near future, and partially the regime of restrictions on details that affect flight safety and traffic will be softened,"says Andrey Olkhovsky, General Director of Avtodom Group of Companies. But the development director of Avtopole, Sergey Vainer, is sure that the parallel import of spare parts can solve the problem of shortages in warranty service.

There have always been risks of counterfeiting in the Russian market, and perhaps now they will increase to some extent, but they are not able to outweigh solutions to a more important problem - namely, providing the market with spare parts for a car. The dealer community, just like the government, is not interested in the distribution of counterfeit and contraband.
