The Courier Pick-up and Delivery Services industry in Australia has experienced rapid growth in demand. In the decade through 2012-13, online retail has grown strongly, with online spending in Australia increasing at a compound annual rate of 7.7% over the period. Retail markets have grown in importance for the industry traditionally oriented more at delivery to businesses than consumers. Much of this growth has come from international e-commerce sites that have relied on the industry to deliver goods within Australia. The demand for parcel delivery services has been a boon for the industry, which is in a growth cycle.
Businesses in the industry engage in door-to-door pick-up (i.e. from residences or places of business), transport and delivery of letters, documents, parcels and other items weighing less than 30 kilograms.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
