Why Buy a FedEx Route Business?

If you’re thinking about purchasing a FedEx route, you’ve come to the right place. As a professional FedEx brokerage firm with a decade of experience, we know a thing or two about finding and buying routes.

We also understand the multi-faceted benefits of owning a FedEx route. This includes both short-term and long-term advantages, plus some that might not be obvious.

Not sure if you should make the move? Here’s why you should buy a FedEx route business:

  1. The initial setup is already done.

It’s no secret that starting a business from scratch is time-consuming and stressful. This is especially true when it comes to marketing and simply letting people know you exist. However, when you purchase a FedEx route, you won’t need to worry about the initial setup. From the logistics to employee training, the actual business will already be in place.

Of course, becoming a route owner still takes hard work. You’ll likely need to adjust the existing business model and make changes as necessary. Still, buying a route lets you skip the initial start-up process, allowing you to focus on being an owner.

  1. FedEx is one of the most recognized brands in the world.

Similarly, FedEx is a renowned and established brand. The name and logo are recognized around the world, thanks to its long history of success in the logistics industry. Therefore, as a route owner, you will benefit from the company’s reputation and presence.

Bottom line? You won’t have to worry about making “a name for yourself” or your business—because FedEx already has that covered.

  1. The world of eCommerce is rapidly growing.

These days, consumers are shopping more often online. This was only amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic, as retailers shut their brick-and-mortar stores and shifted to online platforms. Additionally, thanks to websites like eBay and Etsy, almost anyone can start a small business at home.

In turn, people will consistently require shipping and delivery services from businesses like FedEx. And since the rise in eCommerce shows no signs of slowing down, you can be sure that your services will always be needed.

  1. FedEx offers support for route owners.

When you join the FedEx family, you gain access to professional support and networks. Moreover, these resources will be catered specifically for your business. FedEx brokers like KR Capital are also available to provide additional guidance.

It’s worth noting that owning a FedEx route means adhering to FedEx’s guidelines, too. This may be a pro or con, depending on your leadership style. If you prefer to operate a business according to pre-existing standards, then buying a route might be the right move for you.

  1. You can sell the business in the future.

When you’re ready to retire, relocate, or pursue other goals, you can sell your route business. This presents the potential of making a profit on the route, especially if it has been successful. You might also be able to make back some of your initial investment.
