Aramex Australia has launched a new courier business model called Courier Lite where drivers can focus solely on the most profitable areas – and only do one depot collection a day.
For Aramex Australia this means that it can expand its reach with minimal investment, while the drivers can spend their extra time marketing to other potential customers and build their business. This presents them with a lower bar to eventually get into the courier franchise business.
Aramex Australia CEO Peter Lipinski said the industry-wide shift to B2C deliveries over the last 3-5 years has rapidly accelerated in 2020, thanks to COVID-19. “Online shopping has been booming in Australia in recent years, and the current restrictions have turbo charged this growth. We expect this to continue in coming months and years,” said Lipinski.
“The simplicity of this delivery model is innovation as it creates more time for our traditional Courier Franchisees to focus on pick-ups which are the most profitable part of their business and more guarantees for our customers that we will deliver a positive customer experience as well as creating a significant opportunity for the new Courier Lite franchisees.”
“All this happens without the need to invest in costly additional infrastructure. By a simple change to the delivery cycles, we are able to tick a lot of boxes for our Courier Franchisees, our customers and our new Courier Lite Franchisees.”
“For any Australians looking for an entry-level franchise opportunity in an industry that is booming, Courier Lite is the answer,” said Peter Lipinski. “Courier Lite is a delivery focused model that works as a first step for those considering becoming a successful courier, and is the perfect fit for any current contractors working within a logistics network.”
“If you want the independence of running your own business and are a customer-focused person, Courier Lite provides the security of a Franchise Agreement, support and training from our team and the opportunity to join a globally recognised brand.”
