The IMRG MetaPack Delivery Index has detected fast growth in parcel deliveries from UK retailers in the first four months of the year, prompting the IMRG and MetaPack to lift their annual forecast for the whole of 2014 as a result.

“As always we will continue to monitor this growth and adjust our assessment accordingly but given the evidence so far it would appear that the UK e-retail sector is emerging strongly from the recent economic doldrums and we need to revise our forecast to somewhere between 16% to 19%,” said Andrew Starkey, head of e-Logistics at IMRG.
