Delivering good business

The Opportunity

Speedy Freight are a provider of dedicated same-day couriers, with vehicles ranging from small vans up to and including Arctics and everything in between. You don’t do the driving; you simply manage the job from start to finish.

We are able to transport anything, anywhere, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Our Fleet

Our fleet includes every imaginable size and type of vehicle available, and with access to a network of over 2,500 like-minded members, significantly increases our fleet availability and capacity. Furthermore, by having this extensive resource available to us, it enables you to book vehicles for your customers with confidence from day one!

Speedy Freight® Advantages

Unlike others, we offer:

  • A management business – you manage a growing business. You don’t drive or need any vans yourself.
  • A simple structure – you directly manage dedicated drivers with no sub-depots involved.
  • Everything you need in a turnkey franchise package.
  • Business development managers to develop your area with you.

What’s the Market Like?

Speedy Freight® enjoys high demand at all times:

  • We are more economical than company-owned fleets.
  • Clients reduce costs and use only what they need, when they need it.
  • Clients have reduced their own fleets – so rely on ours.

  • Our proven track record opens the doors to new business and national accounts.

Is it Proven?

Yes it is. Speedy Freight is a multi-million pound organisation, with a network of over 30 successful franchisees, some of which have been running for over 6 years. To give you an idea on the level of success a potential franchisee can expect, an average franchisee will earn around £45K GP in their 1st year, climbing to £80K GP in year two, and further increasing to well over £110K GP in your third year, and that growth pattern doesn’t stop there, and considerable further growth in years 4,5,6,7,8,9 & 10 is achievable and expected, and don’t forget that these figures are based on averages. So highly dynamic franchisees can expect to earn significantly more than is detailed above. Furthermore, our franchise network turned over more than £1,000,000 in June 2016!

What Set-up Do I Need?

  • Franchisees can start from a small office.
