Courier Franchise Opportunities

Ireland and the UK are divided into Regional Franchises, and within each region there are opportunities for Fastway Courier Franchisees. Couriers are granted exclusive territories, where they carry out pick up and delivery work. All couriers only work within their territory, returning to the depot at regular intervals in order to exchange parcels destined for other areas.

Fastway Regional Franchise Opportunities

Regional Franchisees provide the depots, along with administrative, operational, sales and marketing functions. Regional Franchisees also recruit and grant Courier Franchises within their exclusive territory. Opportunities for Regional Franchisees exist in England, Scotland, and Wales.

Training and Support

Courier Franchisees are supported by their Regional Franchisee. The Franchise Support Offices in each country have a huge range of training modules in PowerPoint, and video, which can be delivered in a one to one, classroom, or individual situation.

Courier Franchisees receive on the job and orientation training as well as completing a video training course. Most importantly, Courier Franchisees are trained in the Fastway saturation marketing techniques – the secret to growing a courier business rapidly. Enthusiastic, outgoing and ambitious people who follow this system develop high turnover businesses quickly.

Comprehensive manuals are supplied on CD or in hard copy. These manuals have been developed over many years, and cover all aspects of operating a Courier Franchise.

The marketing manual and training programmes for Courier Franchisees obtain a wide range of free or low cost marketing initiatives that are finely targeted to gaining new customers, or obtaining more business from existing customers. Any of these initiatives that the Courier Franchisee wishes to implement can be put in place within a few days.

All administration is taken care of by the Regional Franchisee, leaving the couriers free to drive the growth of their businesses. Operational, sales, and customer service support are also given, including access to the Fastway network for delivery of parcels to other regions.
