Market Value

Over the past 10 years, the cost of FedEx1  routes has steadily increased year-over-year.

The market value of a FedEx route is typically calculated by taking the free cash flow of the business and applying a given multiple. This multiple can vary depending on a number of factors, including: vehicle fleet, location, type of routes, etc.

In addition to operational and financial variables associated with the route itself, the FedEx corporation is also experiencing tremendous growth of its own. The diversity of their business means they are not reliant on any particular brand or business and are relatively stable even in economic downturns.

FedEx multiples have risen each year over the last decade. We have compiled FedEx sales data over the past 10 years. Below, you can find the average sales multiples for both P&D and linehaul by year.
