About US Parcels Market: Market Insight Report 2018

 

Background to the report

This report provides an analysis of the US parcels market. It sets out the market structure, size, growth, key trends and competitive landscape.

The most important factor has been the growth of internet retail. This has acted both as a driver of volumes and also of innovations, such as defined time-slots, the ability to make changes to deliveries, a broader range of communication methods and the establishment of parcel shops and parcel lockers as pick up / drop-off locations.

GDP and internet retail growth look set to continue, driving demand for parcel deliveries.

Amazon continues to have a significant impact on the market, both as a retailer – where it is gaining an ever-greater share – and now via its in-house carrier, Amazon Logistics, which now carries out over 5% of all US parcel deliveries.

The report builds upon:
– Apex Insight’s published analysis on the global parcels market and in adjacent logistics markets
– Our consulting work in the industry which has included advising on market and strategic issues and the attractiveness of parcel company acquisitions

What does it contain?

The report covers the US parcels market in depth. Our definition of the parcels market includes revenue arising from domestic and outbound international parcels. Inbound international deliveries are not included in our market size as, for most carriers, their revenue is attributed to their country of origin.

It includes business-to-business, business- to- consumer and consumer consigned parcels. Parcel weight definitions vary, between operators, but most deliver parcels up to various weights approaching 70 pounds (31.5 kg). All service levels are included (time definite and deferred). Adjacent services, such as mail, pallet distribution, groupage, freight forwarding, same day courier and contract logistics are excluded.

It segments the market by domestic vs. international.

The report includes:
– Description of the market and the key trends which are shaping it
– Historical and forecast market size and growth covering the period from 2012-2022. Market information is quoted in value and volume terms.
