Inside Franchise Business
Courier Lite is a brand new courier franchise option costing less than $10,000.
It might be new on the scene but it’s backed by a heavyweight business, longterm courier and logistics firm Aramex Australia (formerly Fastway Couriers).
Aramex has launched Courier Lite to support its existing Courier Franchisees in managing the e-commerce delivery boom without compromising customer service or delivery times.
The company reports an increase in delivery of 48 per cent, compared to this time last year.
The new franchise model is focused on high demand areas. Franchisees only collect parcels from the home depot once a day, freeing up time for established couriers to nurture relationships with existing customers and cultivate new business.
Low start-up costs make this an easy entry-level opportunity, and could lead Courier Lite franchisees to later buy a full courier franchise, says CEO Peter Lipinski.
