Global Small Parcel Report 2016: trends in e-commerce

21 December 2016

In November 2016, Spend Management Experts released its first annual Global Small Parcel Report. The report examines the 2015 market to help shippers identify developing trends and the growth of e-commerce. The report cites a 4.3% growth in the market, with North America leading the way, growing 5.3%.
The market is undergoing unimaginable changes around the world. Technology, the rise of ecommerce and changing consumer preferences are all disrupting a market that traditionally has had high barriers to entry. Now these barriers are slowly breaking down as the status quo is challenged with such concepts as crowdsourcing, alternative delivery locations, same-day delivery and real-time tracking.
