DUBLIN, Nov. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/j63j4t/uk_business_to) has announced the addition of the "UK Business to Business Parcels: Market Insight 2015" report to their offering.

This report focuses on the UK business-to-business parcels sector

It provides estimates of

- the size of the segment, - its rate of growth - the B2B revenues of the main carriers serving the segment

It explores what factors drive business to business parcels growth and the extent to which GDP is likely to be a reliable proxy

The report provides qualitative findings from a series of in-depth interviews which we carried out with a sample of 23 business-to-business parcels customers

- The interviews were carried out during August 2015.

- Interviewees were randomly selected from across a range of sectors

- Interviews were conducted by telephone and generally lasted from 25-45 minutes.

The interviews explored the following areas in detail:

- Buying behaviour - how to do customers go about selecting their parcels carriers?

- Sole and multiple suppliers - what do customers do and what are their reasons?

- Satisfaction with carrier performance - how well, and in what areas are carriers meeting customer expectations, where are they falling short, what are the priorities for improvements, and which ones would customers pay extra for?

- Volume trends - how have customers' volumes changed, to what extent is this a function of their own production volumes vs other factors such as changes in supply chain organisation, and what do they expect to happen in future?

- Pricing trends - what do customers actually pay for the services they receive, how have they changed in the past and what do they expect in future?

- Switching behaviour - how often do customers review their use of carriers, do they switch regularly and what is most likely to trigger a switch?

The report contains our conclusions from the work, supported and illustrated by evidence from customers' comments.
