It feels as though the London Courier Market has never been busier with delivery vans and bikes are more prevalent on the roads than ever. More and more items are being delivered by couriers than by the traditional postal system. It will probably not come as a surprise to learn that an amazing 2.8 billion packages were delivered in 2016 across the UK. The London Courier Market is growing, having seen a dramatic surge of 65% since 2012. Couriers are now increasingly seen as the future for parcel and document delivery not only in London but across the UK.
Recent figures show that 87% of people in the UK have either sent or received a parcel via a courier. Today, thanks to modern technology and some forward-thinking by London courier operators, such as Absolutely, it is simple to go online and arrange everything swiftly and efficiently. It’s no wonder that couriers are becoming the go-to delivery channel in London, the UK, and around the world.
With such growth in the London courier market, customers are spoilt for choice. Surely every courier does the same thing anyway – takes your package from A and delivers it to B? But how does it get there, how quickly, how safely, to the right recipient and of course for how much?
According to Logistics expert Stuart Higgins, from LCP Consulting, a staggering 10% of packages are not delivered on time; 8% have had a package damaged whilst it’s in transit. That’s bad news all around – for the customer, for the recipient, and for the courier.
