What are InXpress startup costs?

Explore the details of the initial investment in an InXpress global shipping franchise

One of the big benefits of owning your own home-based franchise is the low overhead. InXpress franchisees serve as resellers who connect small and medium-sized businesses with shipping solutions. Carriers do the actual shipping; franchisees need never touch the boxes. That means there’s no reason to search for warehouse space or packaging inventory.

Depending on how much money you spend on things like computer equipment and a cell phone, your InXpress startup costs will be about $79,300-$169,200. This range represents the lowest estimated cost as well as the highest estimated cost for each item listed. The reality almost always falls somewhere in the middle, depending on how much money you spend on things like computer equipment and licensing fees.
