CouriersPlease has revealed its delivery data which has found that demand for next-day parcel deliveries is booming across Australia.

For Q1 FY24, CouriersPlease has reported its parcel delivery volumes are up 25 percent on the pcp. Its delivery data also reveals a 47 percent growth in same-day metro deliveries. Same-day and next-day metro deliveries were 47 percent higher than all other deliveries. In comparison, in the September 2022 quarter same-day and next-day metro deliveries were just 38 percent higher than all other deliveries.

Commenting on the results, CEO Richard Thame said: “Same-day and next-day metro deliveries are our core business. Our focus on increasing our agility and adaptability to market needs has enabled us to grow these priority services, giving our customers a better delivery experience,” said Thame.

Breaking it down to locales, Sydney dominates the ranking of top seven suburbs for same-day deliveries in 2023 with the top five out of seven suburbs, with Melbourne claiming the other two. The top suburb for same-day deliveries was Moorebank, in south-west Sydney. For next-day deliveries, Melbourne dominated the rankings with four Melbourne making topping the list, with three Sydney ones ranking. Melbourne’s Braeside in the Southern part of Melbourne took the top place for next-day deliveries, followed by Sydney’s Alexandria in the inner West. 

CouriersPlease CEO Richard Thame is impressed with their results going into FY24 and is confident that the company can continue to meet the demands of these convenience loving customers across the East coast and beyond. 

“CouriersPlease has achieved significant growth already this year, largely through the onboarding of a number of large Australian retail customers who share our understanding that customers are doing it tough and need the best-value product and parcel delivery options,” said Thame.
