European Parcels: Market Insight Report 2017 sets out the market structure, size, growth, key trends, Competitive landscape and forecasts.

Parcels markets across Europe have continued to grow in spite of patchy economic performance in many Eurozone countries.

The most important factor has been the growth of B2C e-commerce. This has acted as a driver of volumes and also of innovations, such as defined time-slots, the ability to make changes to deliveries, a broader range of communication methods and the establishment of parcel shops and parcel lockers as PUDO locations.

B2C e-commerce growth looks set to continue, creating further opportunities for those carriers able to provide the quality and range of services at the price that retailers require.

In this environment, further industry consolidation has taken place with FedEx now in the process of integrating TNT Express and other major networks continuing to make add-on acquisitions to fill geographical and service gaps: DHL has increased its presence in the UK with the UK Mail acquisition, and GLS has expanded its operations in Spain.

The report builds upon Apex Insight’s published analysis on the global parcels market and in adjacent logistics markets as well as its consulting work in the industry, which has included advising on market and strategic issues and the attractiveness of parcels acquisitions

The report covers eight main countries in depth: Germany, UK, France, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium and Poland, plus the continent as a whole

It provides historical and forecast market sizes covering the period from 2011-2021.

It segments the market by country and, within each country and at the overall European level, between B2B, B2C and C2X.

Market information is quoted in value terms. Volume figures included where available.
