Report shows Irish Postal Deliveries are down from Covid peak

ComReg collects data from parcel delivery service providers. This data provides insights on parcel deliveries in Ireland and the trend shows the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic had on parcel deliveries.

The latest data collected shows:

  • The Covid-19 pandemic and lockdowns increased parcel deliveries in 2020 and 2021.
  • With the return to normality in 2022, there was a decrease in both parcel revenue and parcel volumes in 2022 compared to 2021.
  • However, despite the decrease last year, parcel deliveries in Ireland were still up from the pre-Covid pandemic years, 2018 and 2019.
  • Comparing 2022 to 2019 (pre-pandemic):
    • Parcel delivery revenue has increased by almost €300m (by just over a half, 52%).
    • Parcel volumes has increased by 32 million parcels (30% increase), mainly in the domestic segment (posted in Ireland for delivery in Ireland).

Further information can be found in ComReg’s publication.
