Canadian Courier Market Size, Structure and Fleet Analysis Study

This document is an abridged version of a complete study that was prepared for Transport Canada to support their ongoing role in the development of policy with respect to various articles of Federal legislation and the gathering and dissemination of information regarding the Transportation sector in Canada. Specific objectives of the study included assessing: 1. How the size and structure of the market has changed over the past 2 years; 2. Key factors affecting growth and major market trends, with an emphasis on how the internet has affected the market; 3. How the courier industry research that has been conducted by Statistics Canada compares with private sector estimates; 4. Vehicle usage within the industry. This abridged version of the report varies from the full study in the following ways: 1. Information for both the overnight or later and sameday/messenger segments of the market have been combined to produce a “total market” overview (in reality, market size and key structural elements vary significantly between the two). 2. The level of detail in which specific concepts are explored in this abridged version is much less as compared to the full report.
