InXpress franchisee experiencing rapid growth as online sales grow

Bhavin Shah

Bhavin Shah started his career as a technical engineer in the IT industry before gravitating towards sales and business development. Having worked on a contract basis with a state government agency in Australia, he knew he had the ability to respond to new challenges. That gave him confidence he could handle owning his own business.

‘I made a checklist of what I wanted from a business: it had to generate passive income; give me time to spend with my young family; be challenging; and be something I had never done before.’

When he read about InXpress, Bhavin realised that it ticked all the boxes. Founded in the UK in 1999, InXpress handles logistics for SMEs to save them time, money and hassle, making it easy for companies to send packages anywhere in the world. With online retail taking off more than ever right now, the 380-plus InXpress franchisees are ideally placed to benefit.

Franchisees are free to focus on sales without being directly involved in the shipping process. Clients use the InXpress WebShip Plus platform to arrange shipments, while the courier company collects the parcels and arranges customs clearance. WebShip Plus also manages quotes, invoices and shipment tracking, leaving franchisees free to seek out new clients, identify their issues and suggest solutions.

‘Franchisees benefit from the recurring income that their clients generate,’ explains Geoff Hargreaves, the company’s Franchise Development Manager. ‘That makes InXpress ideal for someone with business development skills like Bhavin. The investment is just $29,900 +gst and, once established, a franchisee can achieve an income of $20,000 a month – or even more!’

Make money saving money

Bhavin examined the InXpress business model and finances in detail. He had no experience of the freight and shipping industry, but discovered InXpress offers extensive, tried-and-tested training and support, as well as established systems which would provide everything he needed to build a strong and successful business. In the last two years, that’s exactly what he’s achieved.

‘InXpress focuses on smaller clients who can benefit the most from our massive buying power with the courier companies and appreciate our straightforward systems,’ he explains. ‘Customers get access to the reduced shipping costs we offer, and can absorb that into their margins or pass the savings along to their customers to be more competitive. And while they’re saving money, I’m making money.’

InXpress franchisees don’t need a permanent office or large staff – just a laptop, phone and transport. The result has given Bhavin everything he was looking for. ‘I enjoy the work-from-anywhere lifestyle and the flexibility that it gives me to operate (almost) at my own hours.’

Geoff says InXpress has opportunities right now throughout New Zealand. ‘To find out more, call me today.’
