HIGH TOUCH, LOW COST AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO EARN REPEAT BUSINESS IN THE GLOBAL SHIPPING INDUSTRY
The phrase “global shipping logistics franchise” sounds a lot more complex than it is! InXpress is not a retail shipping franchise; we don’t have storefronts and our franchisees never touch any boxes. We’re a home-based, business-to-business services reseller. Our franchisees are salespeople or sales managers, who prospect in their communities and cold call small-to-medium sized businesses around the country to offer shipping and freight solutions to help them grow their businesses. Our core services are international shipping, imports, exports, and domestic freight. As the #1 largest reseller of DHL services, InXpress provides heavily discounted shipping rates to customers by utilizing large volume discounts typically offered only to large corporations. Even more importantly, our franchisees’ business is based on making connections, building relationships, and providing personalized face-to-face service.
We are a nearly $180 million global franchise system across 14 countries that helps small and mid-sized businesses grow. The carriers benefit by outsourcing some of the customer service to us, and franchisees earn money by finding customers who are looking for a combination of lower costs and better service. High customer retention creates a stable residual income flow.
Our mission is to provide franchise owners with a way to build a low investment and high return business while providing best-in-class customer service with a personal touch to all our clients. We focus on the little guy, the small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with anywhere from 2 to 500 employees who normally wouldn’t qualify for discounts or personal attention from the big shipping or freight carriers.
InXpress first opened 20 years ago in the United Kingdom in 1999 and started franchising in the United States in 2006, when CEO Dustin Hansen opened the first InXpress Americas franchise in Atlanta. We’re currently operating in 14 countries with around 100 franchisees in the U.S. and 370 franchisees worldwide, and we only partner with reliable, trustworthy shipping companies.
Our company has been growing at a pace of well over 20% year-over-year in an industry that racks up $700 billion in the U.S. alone and is itself growing at a rapid pace. We grow through our franchisees’ continued efforts to find new customers while keeping the customers we have. Our high customer retention shows customers are experiencing real value with our low-cost, high-touch approach. We help small businesses keep a competitive edge and grow.

Who are we looking for?
Thinking about becoming an InXpress franchisee? You must have sales experience or an aptitude and desire to run a sales business. A background in the shipping industry isn’t as important.
