According to the Financial Times the UK parcel delivery market alone in the UK is worth £10bn per year in annual turnover with a large chunk of the market being as would be expected the B2B courier business sector.
So why do people buy a courier franchise? There are many reasons this sort of career would appeal to people including being able to work the hours they want, effectively controlling their income. Also you are not tied to an office or place of business and this freedom does really appeal to a lot of franchise or business opportunity seekers. Another advantage of a courier franchise is that usually the investment level is low. You will probably need your own vehicle or van but other than that the set-up franchise fees are usually pretty low so you can recoup this quite quickly unlike some other franchises that require a large upfront investment that may take a long time to recoup.
