SANDY, UT - (Marketwired - April 28, 2016) - InXpress, a home-based franchise that helps small businesses navigate and obtain deals in the global shipping logistics industry, has launched a new franchise information site, inxpressfranchise.com, that serves as a clearinghouse for people interested in learning more about the brand and its franchise opportunity.
The website provides an in-depth look at the company's business model, details about startup costs and financial performance, and in-depth interviews with InXpress franchisees and executives. The site explains what makes InXpress different from other shipping franchises that spend their days packing boxes and handling packages.
"What we're good at is helping the customer save money," said CEO Dustin Hansen, who opened the first U.S. location of InXpress in Atlanta in 2006. "A common misconception is that the franchisees are actually involved in the shipping. Our franchises never touch the boxes. We're simply there to provide customers better deals and we provide one-on-one customer service that the big carriers don't offer."
InXpress is a $100 million franchise system that helps small and mid-sized businesses grow by providing access to best-in-class shippers at discounted rates typically offered only to large corporations. InXpress bundles the buying power of thousands of small businesses in order to secure discounted rates from carriers. By using InXpress to handle shipping, customers save money and also receive personal customer service and an advisor who can help them determine the most cost-effective shipping methods.
InXpress has nearly 100 franchises in the U.S. and roughly 300 worldwide working with DHL and 48 other carrier partners, shipping to more than 220 countries.
The customer benefits lead to a high rate of repeat business for InXpress franchisees. The primary customer ships at least 1-2 packages a week, and many customers ship items every day. Because of the high rate of repeat business, franchisees are able to build a strong recurring revenue stream. The company has been growing at a pace of 20% year-over-year in an industry that racks up $700 billion in the U.S. alone.
"I love the residual income," said franchisee Manav Gupta of Princeton, New Jersey. "Whatever I get today may pay me years and years and years into the future. I also love the business we're in, in terms of shipping. You can't get away from it. It's not like technology or software, which is constantly changing. In the next hundred years people are still going to be shipping. More and more small businesses are opening their doors internationally, and that's where we focus our attention."
