USA Postage Facts
The 2018 Pitney Bowes Parcel Shipping index revealed that the USA parcel shipments amounted to $119 billion in revenue with 13 billion parcels shipped, an increase of 7.4% in line with the growth in the previous year. American e-commerce growth has doubled in the last decade, creating greater demand for package delivery services. Parcels of all different shapes and sizes are sent regularly, and the courier industry clearly makes up a large part of the economy.
Mail volumes are not seeing the same pattern of growth with the projection, after reaching a peak of around 213 billion units in 2006, the U.S. Postal Services (USPS) experienced a year-on-year decline in mail volume every year since; by 2019, this number dropped by 33% to just 142.57 billion units.
In 2019, the projection of monthly internet users was at around 251.8 million, seeing e-mail and newer communication technologies replacing traditional mail, for the majority of the population favouring these channels of communication.
