Navis Logistics Network has been franchising since 1984 with a retail entity, Handle With Care Packaging Store, which was founded in 1980. We specialize in packaging and shipping Fragile, Large, Awkward and Valuable items - what we call FLAV. We established Navis Pack and Ship Centers in 2001 and began to seriously franchise this concept in 2002. Navis has the same FLAV emphasis as The Packaging Store, but focuses instead on the business-to-business market. This is an uncrowded, $34 billion market expected to grow to more that $50 billion in the next four to five years. Our business model focuses on (but is not limited to) 100-200 pound items with total logistics solutions: door-to-door delivery, packaging, and full insurance coverage. It includes small residential and commercial moves. Potential customers need cost -efficient ways to ship manufactured technical, scientific, and medical equipment; computers; antiques, and fine art.
