The phrase "global shipping logistics franchise" has a tendency to sound more compIex than it is. InXpress is not a shipping franchise; our people never touch the packages. We're a home-based services reseller, a business based on making connections and building relationships.
We are a nearly $150 million franchise system that helps small and mid-sized businesses grow by providing access to best-in-class shippers at discounted rates typically offered only to large corporations. The carriers benefit by outsourcing some of the customer service to us, and the franchisees earn money by finding customers who are looking for a combination of lower costs and better service.
InXpress first opened in the United Kingdom in 1999 and started franchising in the United States in 2006, when CEO Dustin Hansen opened the first InXpress Americas franchise in Atlanta. We're currently operating in 12 countries with some 300 franchisees worldwide, and we only partner with reliable, trustworthy shipping companies.
Why Our Franchise?
As a home based business, InXpress offers franchisees a low cost of entry. There's no need to start off with bricks-and-mortar, equipment or employees, so your costs to get started are modest. The most successful franchisees won't spend too much time sitting in their home office though — especially not initially.
Instead, they will spend their time introducing themselves and their solution to as many businesses as possible. The value proposition is simple: Lower costs on shipping, and much stronger service than big carriers can offer. Signing up clients is how you hit break-even, and build a highly profitable, highly scalable business.
We are first and foremost a business built on sales skills. Our business model is based on creating residual income from customers with ongoing shipping needs. We seek them out and tell them about our buying power, our world-class carrier partners and our international reach with global shipping leader DHL. When they realize they can save from 11% to 33%, on average, they tend to sign on with InXpress. When they discover our unparallelled, personalized customer service, they tend to stay.
