Peak Trading Update

Welcome to the new and exciting MetaPack blog!

We will be starting off our new blog with a focus on the Peak trading season.

With only 15 days to go until Black Friday, we expect to see a massive increase in consumers buying goods online.

Every year MetaPack produces benchmarking reports to help the industry understand how peak deliveries are shaping up. We track the peak season using our Peak Profile Index and Carrier Performance Heat Map. The Peak Profile Index shows volumes over our platforms from the beginning of September to highlight growth during peak.


The Carrier Performance Heat Map allows you to track how the top UK carriers are performing throughout the Peak period. The Peak Profile Index and Carrier Performance Heat Map are updated weekly to help you keep track.


Until the middle of January, we will be providing weekly blog updates to show how retailers and brands are performing. This data can be used to indicate trends and for comparison to previous years. The weekly updates will include information such as the volume of parcels on the platform broken down into Industry sectors, the balance of domestic vs international parcels, service split, top countries and top UK towns.


Keep Track of Peak 2018
