Leading parcel courier services in the United Kingdom (UK) 2017 The Royal Mail is the leading parcel delivery provider in the United Kingdom. In 2017, the United Kingdom based company held a market share of 47 percent, far ahead of its nearest competitor. The Royal Mail was initially a postal service for members of the royal family, before becoming available to the public in 1635. Arguably the greatest change in the company’s structure followed in 2013, when it was privatized. The Royal Mail delivered approximately 1.2 billion parcels through its UK parcels, international and letters segment in 2018.
