South Africa's Courier And Parcel Services Industry Report 2023 - South African Couriers Partner With Startups To Meet Changing Delivery Needs


(MENAFN- GlobeNewsWire - Nasdaq) Dublin, Nov. 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Courier, Express and Parcel Services Other than Postal Services in South Africa 2023" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets's offering.

The courier, express, and parcel services industry in South Africa is navigating challenges posed by weak economic conditions and reduced business and consumer confidence, which impact the demand for express delivery. However, several factors are reshaping the landscape and presenting opportunities for growth.

Key Trends Shaping the Industry

  • Ecommerce Surge: The ecommerce sector in South Africa is set for accelerated growth, including consumer-to-consumer transactions online. To meet the rising demand, companies are introducing value-added services such as equipment setup and installation. Additionally, courier, express, and parcel (CEP) companies are offering shared warehousing, technology, and services to smaller ecommerce players, fostering job creation and skills development.
  • Innovative Delivery Options: The industry is witnessing the emergence of disruptive startups and innovative delivery solutions, driven by increasing customer demands for fast and flexible deliveries. Traditional operators are reevaluating their distribution strategies, and some are partnering with or investing in new ventures to provide innovative delivery alternatives.
  • Crime Challenges: Road transportation is the primary mode for moving goods in South Africa, but it faces a high rate of violent crime targeting road freight trucks, scooters, and courier vehicles. Robberies and crimes against ecommerce delivery staff have surged, resulting in increased insurance costs and endangering the safety of personnel. These challenges translate into higher shipping costs.

This report provides comprehensive coverage of courier, express, and parcel services in South Africa, specifically those offered by registered unreserved postal operators, excluding reserved national postal activities by the Post Office.
