About Fastway Couriers

Fastway Couriers was conceived in April 1983 from an idea to operate cost effective hourly pickup and delivery services between Napier and Hastings (New Zealand).

Company History

In April 1984 an evaluation of company drivers showed that no new work was being generated by them. It was then decided that the time was right to introduce franchising, and franchise couriers were sought. A large number of franchises were established which resulted in far greater productivity. The franchise courier concept not only provided the incentive desired but also freed up working capital which enabled the company to develop further operations and linehaul networks. Never had franchising in the transport industry been attempted (worldwide) before.

The franchising system was then introduced to all branch operations. It was realised that the success of any operation depended on finding the right people to run the company. The people had to have local knowledge, outgoing personality, knowledge of the industry, the psychological desire to succeed and the ability to run the operation without constant supervision. The introduction of Regional Franchisees fulfilled this obligation and the company continued to grow rapidly.

In 1986 the company's founder, Mr Bill McGowan received the award of "NZ Entrepreneur of the Year". This award resulted in substantial national news media coverage and led to a rapid growth spurt of the company.

Today Fastway is franchised in New Zealand, Australia, England, Scotland, Wales, Germany, Ireland, Northern Ireland, and Spain.
