Is a Unishippers franchise right for you?
Calling all sales pros! Is cold calling your second nature? Is B2B logistics sales your bailiwick? Or are you a driven self-starter looking to put your sales experience to work? Then we're speaking the same language — and we want to hear from you (and if you have logistics experience, that's great too!).
Do you have what it takes to own a logistics franchise?
Owning a logistics franchise is unlike most other franchise opportunities — in fact, Unishippers franchise owners have a lot of unique perks! But not just anyone can cash in on this franchise opportunity. We look for franchise prospects with a strong background in B2B sales. And while you don’t have to have direct experience in transportation sales, it sure wouldn’t hurt! Let us help you turn your sales acquisition skills into a rewarding career — all while earning residual income on every shipment.
Unishippers Franchise Owner Responsibilities
What does a franchise owner do? Well, at Unishippers, that’s up to you! One of the best parts of owning and operating a Unishippers franchise is the freedom you have — because at the end of the day, you’re the boss. But no matter how you structure your business, you’ll likely start out selling (and many owners continue to sell even after they have a sales staff in place). In addition to ensuring you reach your sales goals, you’ll spend your time overseeing all aspects of your business — including managing a small staff (if you choose), monitoring and maintaining profitability, assisting your customers in assessing their needs, proposing a shipping plan and setting them up with the Unishippers tools they need to start shipping.
A Day in the Life of Your New Life
As a Unishippers franchise owner, your days are never quite the same — it’s one of the things our owners like best! But in any given day, you could find yourself:
- Cold-calling small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) to assess their shipping needs and set up an appointment
- Meeting with business decision-makers and demonstrating the cost and time-saving value of Unishippers
- Providing assistance and consultation to Unishippers customers
- Building a sales funnel and coaching your team on converting prospects to customers
- Participating in training calls to get hands-on guidance and support from our Unishippers Corporate team (we’ll help you perfect your sales pitch, hone your cold-calling skills and master using our technology platform!)
What’s the difference between franchise ownership and freight agent programs? The proof is in the profit!
Both franchise ownership and the freight agent model have a similar premise: be your own boss and control your income by reselling shipping services on your own. But that’s where most of the similarities end! Becoming a freight agent usually has a lower cost of entry, but franchise ownership can create more lifetime value. That’s because franchise owners keep more of their gross profits and are building an asset (their book of business) that has potential to ultimately be sold. At the end of the day, owning a franchise business really does beat being a freight agent!
