What are the objectives of this report?

The UK parcels industry has continued to grow, however the traditional business-to-business (B2B) segment is increasingly mature. To find growth, parels carriers have had to look first to consumer deliveries (B2C) as home shopping became increasingly important, and now, as marketplaces such as eBay and Amazon continue to grow and increased home shopping leads to ever more returns, to parcels consigned by consumers and eBay sellers (C2X parcels).

The report is intended for parcels carriers and logistics groups, home-shopping retailers, operators of C2X parcels service providers, potential entrants to the segment, investors, banks, analysts, consultants and other parties with interests in the area.
