The global express and small parcels market continues to be driven forward by e-commerce but there are challenges on the horizon in the shape of slowing global economies, lower international trade growth and cross-border reform. Global Express and Small Parcels 2019 examines these challenges whilst assessing the opportunities for growth within alternative delivery networks, cross-border B2C e-commerce.

The report also contains in-house market sizing, with both 5-year CAGR and 2019 full year estimates. There are also in-depth case studies of alternative delivery networks, including Amazon, Alibaba and JD.com’s locker networks and analysis of how changes to foreign market access might impact on low cost e-retailers.

Finally the report looks at the express market in regional terms – reviewing regional market structure and competitive landscape.
