Why Postal Operators
Cross-border eCommerce is responsible for the handling and distribution of over 9.3 billion orders with 60% of those orders intercontinental (McKinsey & Company 2022).
Global retail eCommerce sales are currently in the region of $5.7trillion – around 22% of which are cross-border (Statista). This figure is forecast to grow to over $8trillion by 2026.
Postal operators have traditionally dominated this market with over two thirds of parcels being delivered via the International Mail Service.
This international service is characterised by competitive pricing, reliable transit times, simple customs clearance procedures and access to the postal delivery network which is characterised by its density and is ideal for B2C parcels.
However, the rapid growth of mail parcels delivered via this channel has been severely impacted in recent years, mainly due to several important regulatory developments and initiatives.
