Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Courier, Express, and Parcel (CEP) Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the report global courier, express, and parcel (CEP) market: A-1 Express, BDP International, DHL, FedEx, UPS, American Expediting, Allied Express, Antron Express, Aramex, Bring Couriers, City Link, DTDC, Deliv, DX Group, Dynamic Parcel Distribution (GeoPost), Dynamex, Express Courier, General Logistics Systems, Hermes Europe, Interlink Express Parcels, LaserShip, Last Mile Logistics Group, NAPAREX, One World Express, ONS Express & Logistics, Parcelforce Worldwide, Power Link Delivery, Prestige Delivery, Purolator, Royale International, Ship2Anywhere, SWIFT Couriers Services, TCS Express and Logistics, Toll Holdings, TransForce, Tuffnells Parcels Express, Unique Air Express, and Yodel

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said that dominance of integrated service providers is one the key trends. The CEP market is characterized by vendors that are engaged in providing either asset-type or non-asset-type services. However, integrated service providers are a combination of both asset-type and non-asset-type providers. While asset-type providers own truck fleets or warehouses and non-asset-type providers act as consultant firms or as forwarders.

According to the report, growing e-commerce market is one of the drivers promoting growth. Urbanization and increased disposable income of consumers are influencing the retail sector, which is resulting in the expansion of well-organized retail spaces. The scenario is prominent, especially in the e-commerce market, which is growing rapidly in most regions, fostered by the increased adoption of Internet and mobile services.

Further, the report states that varied pricing structure among vendors is one of the challenges that the market is facing. The Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) has approved rate changes to the various services offered by United States Postal Service (USPS). The changes will lower the rates for companies such as e-commerce businesses, which ship high volume and light-weight packages. This can affect the B2C market share of UPS and FedEx.
