IT-enabled services also help make the business processes faster and more accurate than manual processes. This increases the profitability of express delivery service providers.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is growing demand for express delivery services in medical and emergency healthcare sectors. Express delivery services for medical emergencies and urgent transportation of samples and specimens are vital for any hospital, medical clinics, or testing labs. Quick transportation between hospitals, medical clinics, and healthcare facilities is essential. Vendors in the European market are focusing on improving the delivery time of medical emergency products and samples by implementing route optimization tools to keep track of the delivery and to ensure timely delivery of the products.

Further, the report states that in express delivery, one of the major challenges faced by the consumers is the fuel surcharge that is calculated along with the base shipping rates. With fluctuating prices of fuel, players in the market apply surcharges to meet the shortage of fuel, when the prices of gasoline are high. Depending on the price of the fuel, companies apply surcharges during delivery.
