Key Findings of the Study
Increase in adoption of smartphones and high penetration of Internet across the globe is positively influencing the adoption of e-commerce across the global population. This has also influenced businesses to adopt online selling channels to reach a higher customer base. For instance, according to GSMA, the top countries with the highest percentage of smartphone users are China (63.4%), India (31.8%), the US (81.6%), Indonesia (58.6%), Brazil (51.4%), Russia (68.5%), Japan (59.9%), Mexico (54.4%), Germany (77.9%), and Vietnam (63.1%). Additionally, the Internet penetration across these countries is influencing the population to adopt online buying. Express delivery is being highly adopted by brands and e-commerce websites to offer better customer service by delivering parcels in less time.

Due to increase in Internet penetration and online shopping, B2C e-commerce in the globe is witnessing growth. For example, the US B2C e-commerce industry contributed about 10% of total retail revenue in 2019. Moreover, end users who place orders for food and luxury products, such as jewelry, are prepared to spend more on quick product delivery services. By implementing a shortened lead time, e-tailers are also gradually attempting to gain a competitive advantage. These factors are driving the demand for same-day delivery services, where manufacturers pick up and deliver goods from e-tailer warehouses to consumers on the same day. For instance, A1-SameDay Delivery Service Inc. operates in different divisions, such as Local Courier Service, National Courier Service, Scheduled Delivery, and Bike Messenger Service. Same-day delivery services for small and large packages are provided by the company. Some other companies operating in the market are Deliv, Deutsche Post AG, Express Courier, and FedEx Corp., among others.
