Courier franchises are becoming increasingly popular and at Diamond, we are approached by people who want to become a part of our Network Partnership opportunity.
This is NOT a courier franchise.
Our Network Partner opportunity is only for very serious, logistics-based businesses who want to establish a substantial three service income from our added services. It is not a work from home reseller franchise.
If you want to find out more about what our Network Partnership does involve, then you can take a look here.
But if you are looking for a more simplistic offering, then we thought we’d share with you a few of the courier franchise opportunities in the UK today.
Introducing World Options
They are effectively a reseller of carrier services backed with their own software. They have been building their business predominantly on the back of selling franchises for a long time.
In fact, Warren Ferguson of RDS – you can see their information here – used to direct their franchise sales.
It’s a small world in courier franchises!
They say "A World Options Courier Franchise is your chance to be part of a steadily growing industry’.
You can offer shipping and freight services to small and medium-sized businesses from all over the UK, all from the comfort of your home."
They give comprehensive training and prior experience in the courier industry is not needed to become a World Options franchisee. All newcomers attend a 5-day training course with the franchise owner and industry expert Richard Ormerod.
During training, franchisees learn about the sales process, the industry and what being a franchisee is all about. Every franchisee is also paired with a dedicated sales mentor for the first 12 months to help grow the franchise.
Their model is the same as RDS that its effectively a resellers franchise. They say, "With bulk buying power, World Options franchisees can offer their customers shipping rates they wouldn't be able to get otherwise".
With every time your customer ships, you get a cut.
Therefore, no matter how involved you are in each shipping process, you still get residual income along the way.
