Couriers have been part of American history since the West was won. Back then, Wells Fargo was the primary delivery service, delivering packages, newspapers, and gold throughout country. Today, there are a number of great courier business opportunities for those looking to get in on the action.
The $206 billion Global Courier & Delivery Services Industry has been growing at a steady rate the past few years. There are now over 39,000 courier companies, many of which are small, independent U.S-based outfits. Courier businesses, in fact, are ideally suited to being small enterprises. The task is to pick up and deliver local documents, packages, letters and, sometimes, precious cargo like medical equipment, blood, and transplant organs. You'll find different types of courier service businesses in most large cities, many employing bike messengers to provide the time-sensitive and one-on-one customer service that is crucial to this industry.
You can find a good courier business for sale when the owners approach retirement age. Look for something that includes any necessary equipment and materials, as well as a current client list. This turn-key business may only require whatever renovations and marketing changes you decide to make. If you’re up for more of a challenge, franchises such as DHL, FedEx, and TNT are International delivery options. While mom-and-pop stores offer freedom, the big corporations provide big business support. Either way, courier services will always be in demand. Browse the BizQuest site today to find great courier companies for sale.
