Looking for FedEx Routes to Buy? Avoid Craigslist and Work with a Reputable Broker Instead

If you have been thinking about starting a business, becoming a FedEx contractor may be a wise investment in your future. Not only will you be partnering with a leader in global logistics backed by a 50-year reputation for service and reliability, but owning FedEx routes offers a steady stream of revenue and the flexibility that comes with being your own boss.

Of course, your next question may be, “Where do I look for FedEx routes to buy?”

FedEx routes, including both P&D and linehaul routes, are not sold by FedEx directly but rather by existing contractors who are currently looking to sell their routes. As such, you might come across a listing for routes for sale on Craigslist or similar sites. However, we have outlined the three most important reasons why sites like Craigslist are not the best place to find these leads—and why working with a reputable FedEx broker is a much better idea. 

  1. Price. FedEx routes listed for sale on Craigslist often come with sky-high price tags. But in reality, these prices are not at all reflective of the current market value or what people are actually paying for FedEx routes. (In most cases, they are far higher than what you should be paying to gain access to your own routes.) Working with an experienced FedEx route broker will help you avoid the sticker shock and ensure that you are paying fair market value for any currently available routes.
  2. Integrity. Sellers on Craigslist and other classified ad sites are not properly vetted, and opportunities that look too good to be true are most often scams. Working with a broker ensures that you are only ever working with legitimate buyers. It also guarantees that any information you share, including your personal and financial information, is kept secure and confidential.
  3. Time. Your time is precious, especially when you are trying to get a new business up and running. Instead of wasting valuable time chasing lead after lead on Craigslist, buying FedEx routes through a broker can help you quickly locate sellers with profitable routes so you can start the process on the right foot.

The FedEx route sales process is complex and extensive. For this reason, it benefits you to work with an experienced FedEx brokerage firm that will help expedite the process by making sure you fulfill the specific requirements at each step to guarantee a smooth and successful sale.
