Courier franchise opportunities are becoming a lot more prominent in the UK market. The growth in this industry is mainly due to the continued rise of online retailing forcing businesses to try and keep up with the online giants such as Amazon, Tesco & eBay all offering same day delivery services. The demand for private delivery services continue to increase year-on-year, and some of the UK’s largest courier franchises are experiencing some of their biggest profits ever.
A courier franchise in the UK can feel safe in knowing that we are expected to see growth in the postal & courier market for the next 5 years at a minimum. With a current market performance of close to £21 billion and a forecasted increase in the market, we anticipate many more courier franchise opportunities coming up.
With more courier franchise opportunities coming out all the time, this is also increasing competition within the market. However, with the expected growth in the market plus the increase in collection points for parcels which support additional growth & efficiency, the increased competition should equal out with the growth.
Courier franchises are focused around the collection, sorting and transporting of goods, such as letters, parcels and other unique items. Even though the services within this industry aren’t that diverse compared to other franchise industries, the courier franchise opportunities available do vary quite largely. The minimum investment cost for a courier franchise is normally over the £8,000 mark, due to the need to purchase vehicles for transporting.
As the industry doesn’t have any particularly industry specific training or knowledge required to operate the business, no experience is needed for most courier franchise opportunities. You will however be provided with a comprehensive training program once your application has been accepted. To become a success this market, you need to have the drive and determination to make it a success.
