“The express industry is expected to grow by 6.7% per annum over the next ten years, nearly three times as fast as GDP, as the industry serves the increasing need for rapid, guaranteed delivery - especially from companies in the fastest growing sectors of the economy. As a result, the catalytic contribution of the express industry to UK GDP is set to increase over the next twenty years, to more than £5 billion a year in 2004 prices." Oxford Economic Forecasting
