As the owner of a FedEx route, you have an amazing opportunity to forge your own way, with the comfortable backing of a worldwide brand (with a trusted service and a reliable product). Effectively, you become a steward of that brand and stand to benefit along the way. But, what about the expenses? Or, how much can you expect to make? Owning a route is an investment, so before you put your money where your mouth is let’s consider the numbers…
When you own a FedEx route and operate as a contractor, you can get paid in multiple ways. This level of diversification helps because it ensures that if the market ebbs and flows you can remain on your feet. Instead, what you can expect is:
- Money coming in from a flat annual rate.
- Payments for services (whether for delivery or pick up).
- Bonuses based on performance (like customer service).
All these factors in mind, the average annual profit for a FedEx route has been reported at between $30,000 – $40,000. While it might not seem like your on your way to becoming a millionaire, the best part about owning a FedEx route is that you don’t have to own just one!
In fact, the best business people own multiple FedEx routes. If you have routes in different locations, with different employees, you can continually profit from business in different areas. All of a sudden $40,000 can start to look a lot like $400,000!
While you definitely do not have to worry about marketing, brand recognition, or business, there are some expenses that come with owning your own FedEx route. The main ones include:
- The capital you will need to buy the route.
- Paying and keeping hold of employees to help run your route.
- The vehicles you will need to put on the road.
The average FedEx route costs approximately $100,000. At the same time, you can expect to employee approximately between 7 – 10 people. From there, it’s all about the little things: trucks, uniforms, decals, and software. While it might seem costly at first, it is now your business, with a consistent process, business, and brand that is going nowhere on the global market.
