LONDON, July 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The report provides a market analysis of the UK sameday delivery market. The report quantifies the market size, historical growth rates and levels of industry profitability. It also includes an in-depth analysis of the relevant drivers of industry growth setting out historical trends and available forecasts. It profiles the leading providers of sameday delivery services in the UK, ranked by turnover. Our forecast for industry growth is based on this analysis of historical trends and growth drivers. The report covers the providers of pure sameday delivery services, as well as those providers that offer technical services as part of a field support network.
The sameday delivery market is a broad term for the provision of items on the same day, either at any time on the day or in a chosen time window. It is typically a premium service, and as such often commands a premium price – sometimes many times more expensive than a next-day service. It includes both B2B and B2C segments and also domestic vs. international (principally Europe) which is a low volume, high value, premium service.
For B2B, It covers a range of areas, including:
– Field service logistics support, including the delivery of spare parts to field engineers nationwide in industries including IT, automotive, aviation, utilities, defence and food & drinks
– Urgent medical supplies transport, including deliveries of blood, medical equipment other urgent health related items
– Ad-hoc deliveries of other urgent items across the country
For B2C it covers the premium delivery of items purchased over the Internet.
-Purchasers are weighted towards younger generations, people living in small households, those working longer hours and consumers with higher incomes.
-Providers include both external third-party courier services and services developed in-house by major retailers such as Argos and Amazon.
Apex Insight estimates the UK sameday delivery market at around £550m in size, having grown at around 5% per year since 2010. The market consists of a large B2B segment and a small, but rapidly growing, B2C segment. The main source of market growth is the B2C segment. Here, the key driver of growth is the adoption of sameday delivery for internet retail purchases. UK internet retail has grown rapidly, to around £100bn in value. Only a few companies command significant market shares, with a long tail of smaller operators offering either purely sameday services or as part of a wider courier offering. Companies covered in the report include CitySprint, Rico Logistics, Royal Mail / eCourier / Shutl, Pass My Parcel and UKMail. We expect the sameday market to continue to grow, driven in particular, by more rapid growth of the B2C segment as the idea of sameday delivery or internet purchases becomes mainstream.
