Express Delivery Demand Jump

The latest insight from MetaPack indicates clearly that consumers are starting to use express delivery services the closer we get to Christmas Day. Earlier in December around 20% of deliveries were via premium express services, but in the last week this has risen sharply to 45%, and is likely to keep climbing over the next few days.

In terms of carrier performance, MetaPack’s data also shows that the high quality of service and delivery standards that have characterised the entire Peak period continues apace whilst overall delivery volumes continue to track 12% ahead of last year.
