LONDON, Feb. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Will established Express providers resist new technology or incorporate it?
The express parcel industry is under pressure like never before
Rapid changes due to the expansion of ecommerce and the technology behind it have upset the traditional ways in which parcels are handled. Disruptive market entrants (start-ups) and peer-to-peer collections are also affecting the industry.
Alternative delivery solutions such as retail locations (click & collect), transport modes (train stations and other commuter centres), parcel shops (UPS access points) and lockers are already impacting how the industry operates.
e-commerce has transformed the express market into a 'go-go' sector with explosive expansion on a global scale. Businesses are working to harness this growth through a variety of means.
What opportunities are available to start-ups and how disruptive could these be to the market?
How will the potential acquisition of TNT by FedEx impact the express and small parcels market share of the integrators?
Why have different regions reacted differently to e-retail, and which factors could hinder, or boost, their growth?
Global Express & Small Parcels 2015 author, John Manners-Bell, said of the report,
"Fundamental changes in the market structure, caused by e-retailing, technological disruption and macro-economic upheaval, have created opportunities and challenges for express companies in equal measure."
