Route Sellers: What Do Prospective Buyers Look Like?

When the time is right to sell your FedEx route business, you have one primary goal: to find the right buyer at the right price. Understanding who may be interested in buying your FedEx routes is an important step toward ensuring a smooth and successful sales process—and the KR Capital Buyer Database is an ideal place to start. It includes a list of more than 10,000 qualified buyers who are specifically interested in purchasing FedEx routes all across the country.

Who is buying FedEx routes?

As with selling any privately held business, getting to know your prospective buyers helps route sellers know what to expect once the gears are in motion. On average, KR Capital generates a list of up to 50 buyer inquiries for each transaction we work on, and buyer activity may vary considerably based on a wide variety of factors. These factors include price, location, and time on the market.

In general, the people interested in purchasing your FedEx route business are individuals looking for a sound business investment. Similar to your line of thinking when you first bought your routes, they are attracted to the freedom and flexibility that comes with owning an independent business, and they like the idea of having a source of reliable revenue and plenty of room for growth. Individual buyers typically look for an established route business with a history of performing well and a reliable team and system already in place.

Alternatively, some prospective buyers are current FedEx route owners who have their sights set on expansion. It could be that they are looking to add additional routes to expand into new customer service areas, or they may want to add a linehaul route to their existing P&D route business to increase their revenue potential.
