Couriers and Messengers - US Industry Market Research Report (Covers 2010-2023)
The 2019 Couriers and Messengers Market Research Report is an in-depth assessment of the industry in the U.S. with over 100+ data sets covering 2010-2023.
The Couriers and Messengers industry includes companies primarily engaged in providing intercity, local, and/or international delivery of parcels and documents (including express delivery services) without operating under a universal service obligation. The restriction to small parcels partly distinguishes these companies from those in the transportation industries. The complete network of courier services companies also distinguishes these transportation services from local messenger and delivery companies in this subsector. This includes the companies that perform intercity transportations well as companies that, under contract to them, perform local pick-up and delivery. Messengers, which usually deliver within a metropolitan or single urban area, may use bicycle, foot, small truck, or van.
