Delivering the goods: Growth is coming, but operators must adapt to substitutes
Couriers & Local Delivery Services in the US
In the five years to 2012, IBISWorld expects revenue for the Couriers and Local Delivery Services industry to fall, largely as a result of the recession. Downstream demand from manufacturers, retailers and households largely influences the need for industry services. At the same time, changes in fuel prices, globalization trends and competition from substitutions, namely advancements in telecommunication services, also influence industry performance. Over the next five years, the economy will continue to pick up and industry revenue growth will be mild.
This report is a combination of two separate industries, Couriers (NAICS 49211) and Local Messengers and Delivery Services (NAICS 49221). Couriers
are establishments that primarily engage in delivery services between urban centers using a network of air and surface transportation systems. In contrast, local messengers only provide delivery services within a single urban area and are excluded from courier networks.
