Economic Conditions Drive Business Demand for Cost-Effective Shipping Solutions

Freight and Logistics Concept Experiences Steady Growth and Doubles Revenue

TAMPA, Fla. Nov 7, 2011– As the economy continues to force companies to closely analyze all costs of doing business, including shipping, franchises like BlueGrace® Logistics are experiencing explosive growth. The freight and logistics company is doubling its revenues every year to fill what appears to be a non-stop demand for cost-effective ways to move items from Point A to Point B.

BlueGrace Logistics, a freight and logistics service provider founded in 2007, currently has three company stores and eight franchise locations operating throughout seven states. The company is experiencing steady growth in the $500 billion dollar shipping industry, doubling its system-wide revenues every year since its inception. BlueGrace Logistics has relationships with more than 3,000 transportation companies and provides a simple solution to the shipping process for businesses.

“What Orbitz is to travelers, BlueGrace is to shipping – businesses use our services to easily find the right avenues and modes to move their items,” President and CEO Bobby Harris said. “The web-based support and discounted rates that we offer are ideal for businesses that don’t have the time, manpower or technology to move their items efficiently.

On the heels of industry demand and company growth, BlueGrace started franchising in January 2011, offering an inexpensive opportunity with a quick return on investment. The opportunity requires low start-up cost and gives franchisees a flexible schedule allowing them to grow at their desired pace. The company offers a comprehensive training program and on-going franchisee support so that both individuals seasoned in the industry and those with no experience can join the BlueGrace team.

BlueGrace provides franchisees continued support after opening including a full pricing department for request for proposals, sales support for larger accounts, full access to software, data analysis tools and hiring assistance. The system provides a lucrative opportunity and an easy-to-grow business.

“As long as there is business there will be shipping, and as long as there is shipping, we will prosper,” Harris added.
