Our Experience in the Sector

Apex Insight reports are written by someone who is familiar with the market, people in the marketplace are comfortable with what Apex writes, and the banks trust the numbers. I was comfortable presenting the information to our Board.
We’d spent a lot of time trying to piece together a picture of how the different European parcels markets were structured. Your report was like the Holy Grail! After I read it, I deleted all the other bookmarks that I’d collected.
The Apex Insight report gave us information and also an understanding of the market that helped us to make the right call on an important decision.
[Apex Insight’s research] provided extremely useful data and industry insights.
Good report with in-depth analysis of the competing companies. Great for describing the market comprehensively.
The report was very detailed and beyond what we were seeking. The topic was covered in depth…. the profiles were particularly well covered.
Apex Insight’s report gives a comprehensive overview of the UK Parcels Market and the competitors in the marketplace. I think it is accurate information and I would rate it 5 out 5 for Quality.
What we found particularly useful was the end user analysis of what is a complex value chain. The Apex Insight report was more complete in this regard than other sources.
Very good report … would consider buying [an Apex Insight report] again in the future.
I have bought 3 or 4 reports from Apex Insight. Once I read them I knew this was the place to go and I don’t need to look elsewhere.
..the [Apex Insight] report provided me with the 3rd party validation that I needed.
Even though the management team have worked in the [logistics] industry for 30 years, they welcomed the fresh insights given by Apex.
Apex Insight’s report told us what we needed to know to make the right decision on a potential opportunity.
I found the UK Parcels Report very helpful because it gives a comprehensive view of the market, including the macroeconomic environment; market drivers and operating models; key players; plus size, segmentation and growth forecasts.
Thank you for the [Apex Insight] report … our consultants found it very helpful.
Very articulate report, timely delivery … I will definitely use and recommend Apex Insight for other market insight requirements.
