The express industry has been able to respond to the growth in international trade by investing in new delivery routes and services to ensure that they can meet the growing demand for rapid, guaranteed international delivery. The express industry has brought services to businesses that are simply not achievable from the businesses themselves, or from individual transport operators. Tools such as en-route product tracking are unique to the express industry and allow companies to provide extra support for customers, boosting their competitive performance.
