TORONTO, Ont. — Infobase Marketing has released the latest iteration of its annual Canadian Courier Industry Market Trends Report.

Using a combination and text and graphs, this comprehensive and detailed document covers the top 44 trends currently affecting the Canadian Courier Industry in the context of 15 major subject groupings. Examples of the groupings include Market Size/Structure, Labor Relations, Service Offerings, Market Pricing, Technology and Competitive Framework.

“This is the 9th edition of our Market Trends Report, and as is the case each year, the number and complexity of forces driving the industry continues to increase” said Gary Breininger, President of Infobase.

Breininger adds that for courier companies, the report will provide valuable insights into the key trends driving the market, and the strategies that should be considered to maximize success. Providers of logistics services in general will also benefit from the report, as many of the trends discussed and information contained in it extend beyond the courier sector alone, he adds. Finally, shippers, or users of courier and logistics services can use the report to gain a better understanding of major developments within the courier/logistics sector to ensure they are optimally positioned to capitalize on opportunities and minimize potential threats.

“While there are certainly a number of trends that characterize the market, the most pervasive are the continuing efforts of couriers (and 3PL’s in general) to migrate beyond their traditional modally oriented areas of operation to increasingly work with customers in addressing the entire spectrum of their supply chain and logistics requirements, and the substantial impact technology continue to have on the industry in terms of both service improvement and cost reduction” said Breininger.

The report is available for sale by contacting Infobase Marketing. For more information call 416-724-8789 or visit
