Market and business research involves acquiring information and fact & figures according to client specifications. It’s about using the correct and most appropriate methodologies, accessing the relevant sources, and asking the right questions. The result is a comprehensive set of data and figures, forming the groundwork for facts-based decision-making.
However, the best market and business research in the world is only ever as good as your ability to interpret and apply it.

Our formula for success is simple:
Market and Business Research + Industry Expertise = Data-Driven, Strategic Decision-Making
We combine market and business facts with expertise in our clients’ specific operating environment to help them envision actionable scenarios – which we then help them execute.
Often, the information you need is already out there. You just need to know where to look.
We have access to most of the existing papers, studies and data in the market. And – more importantly – we understand their weaknesses and errors.
When it comes to data quality the logistics market, and the postal market in particular, is an extremely grey area. Product specifications are complex and not standardized, and sources (especially public ones) often unreliable.
Just one example: four separate studies, undertaken on behalf of the EU Commission, German regulator (BNetzA) and various ecommerce associations, have each produced very different answers to the simple question of how many domestic parcels are sent within Germany each year.
We identify the true figures, put existing data into context, and provide any necessary supplementary explanations.
With over 3 decades' experience in the industry, we’ve established a reputation as the place to go to for unbiased and accurate information.
We’ve compiled a range of client-specific, and usually highly confidential, studies and papers, giving our clients valuable insights and solid facts about the ecommerce & postal market, competitors, and business models. Recent examples include:
We serve a wide variety of European & international clients in all areas of Digital Commerce & Logistics.

We are international experts in our field, chosen to help determine tomorrow’s European and global standards.
