Global Express & Small Parcels 2015 – How will the potential acquisition of TNT by FedEx impact the express and small parcels market share of the integrators?

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Express & Small Parcels 2015" report to their offering.

e-commerce has transformed the express market into a go-go' sector with explosive expansion on a global scale. Businesses are working to harness this growth through a variety of means.

Rapid changes due to the expansion of ecommerce and the technology behind it have upset the traditional ways in which parcels are handled. Disruptive market entrants (start-ups) and peer-to-peer collections are also affecting the industry.

Alternative delivery solutions such as retail locations (click & collect), transport modes (train stations and other commuter centres), parcel shops (UPS access points) and lockers are already impacting how the industry operates.

Key Questions
