Reporting September 2018 Performance

Online volumes fall as shoppers get ready for peak

  • Although September 2018 has produced a month-on-month drop in delivery volumes of 15.1% this is entirely expected and normal for this time of year.
  • Current trend means that 1.54 billion parcels will be dispatched in 2018 by UK retailers through UK carriers.
  • An increasing proportion of this volume will be sent by next day delivery which is now the dominant domestic service
  • Order values for parcel deliveries are holding steady at above £50, a significant improvement on this time two years ago when they were down in the low £40 range
