Westpac Franchise Awards 2018The courier franchise opportunity

Courier franchisees carry out the actual courier work from their vehicle, calling on their regular customers within their exclusive territory, and working to their own preset timetable.

Consider these benefits of a Courier Franchise opportunity:

  • Potential for high income
  • Exclusive territory with an established customer base - you own the goodwill
  • High levels of training and support
  • Five day working week (weekends free)

Skills and experience required

A Courier Franchisee doesn't require any specific business skills as full training and assistance is given, but they should possess an outgoing and friendly attitude and a willingness to give a high level of customer service.

Purchase price inclusions

The price includes the goodwill, the rights to an exclusive franchise territory, a perpetual franchise agreement (very rare in franchising) and access to the Fastway Courier franchise system. 

Growth phase

The courier industry continues to grow due to just-in-time deliveries and the increase in on-line ordering.  Fastway Couriers has continued to grow year-on-year since its inception in 1983. Fastway is now rebranding as Aramex since it joined the leading global provider of comprehensive logistics and transportation solutions.
