TORONTO, Ont. — The Canadian courier market reached $6 billion in 2011, according to the latest Canadian Courier Market Size Report published by Breininger & Associates.
“As a result of revenue growing by just over 9% versus 2010, in 2011 the market broke through the $6B threshold”, said Gary Breininger, president of Breininger & Associates. “This revenue growth includes the combined impact of annual price increases, changes in the mix of business by lane and package type and increases in fuel surcharge levels. Looking at the change in daily package volume (which increased by 1.9% in 2011 versus 2010) is therefore a more accurate indicator of core growth.”
Using a combination of commentary and detailed data tables, the report explores all aspects of the size and structure of the Canadian Courier market, including:
• Total market size (revenue, packages and revenue/package
• Breakdown by lane (domestic, cross border and rest of world)
• Breakdown by time sensitivity/service level
• Breakdown by package type (letter, pak, package)
• Origin/destination flows
• Individual company market share analysis
• Future growth forecast (to 2015)
The substantial size of the courier market clearly indicates the important role this segment of the overall logistics sector has in Canadian businesses overall supply chain strategies and by implication, the Canadian economy as a whole.
