IMRG MetaPack UK Delivery Index - September 2016 (reporting August)

Next day delivery takes the lead

  • August has delivered a recovery in volume growth following a disappointing July and overall in 2016 the UK’s retailers have dispatched 13.2% more parcels through UK carriers than for the same period last year. If this rate of growth continues we can expect a total of 1.2 bn parcels for the full year.
  • As a proportion of the total volume of orders, for the first time in the history of the Index, next day delivery has moved ahead of economy delivery.
