IMRG MetaPack UK Delivery Index - March 2018

Reporting February 2018 Performance

Weather forecast not enough to upset the online forecast

  • Even though we have seen a sharp (21%) drop in on-line order volumes between January and February, the Delivery Index still shows an increase of 7% on last year and 14.2% cumulatively for the first two months of 2018.
  • Next day and specified day delivery services have once again taken over as the most popular services used but this, combined with poor weather at the end of the month has had a negative impact for on-time delivery performance.
  • Cross-border volumes and order values remain strong especially for EU destinations
