Coresight Research

What's Inside

This report is part of our 12 Weeks of Holidays series, in which we present key data, trends and observations as we count down to the peak holiday season.

We discuss the issues regarding last-mile shipping for the holiday season this year, with a focus on:

  • Shipping capacity volumes for the big three carriers in the US—FedEx, UPS and the USPS
  • Holiday surcharges, including the duration and per-package fees levied by FedEx, UPS and the USPS
  • Amazon’s move toward bringing delivery in-house
  • Implications for brands, retailers and technology vendors
