The Courier Pick-up and Delivery Services industry provides door-to-door delivery services connecting businesses to their clients, and consumers to one another. While the industry is exposed to demand from all sectors of the economy, over the past five years, activity in two segments – retail and mining – has been influential on industry performance.
Over the past decade, the industry's performance has strengthened, but increased in volatility, as spending in the Mining division has grown. The industry has captured revenue from providing door-to-mine site deliveries of essential items demanded at short notice in remote locations.
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. Industry services are provided within Australia, with the destination or origin of goods both international and domestic.
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.
