Own a Logistics Franchise That Delivers


The life you want

If you’re looking for a logistics career that puts you in the (metaphorical) driver’s seat, then you’re exactly where you need to be. Our national franchise model enables you to work (and sell) practically anywhere. And as a B2B service provider, no one’s asking you to work beyond standard business hours. That means you can enjoy the flexibility of being your own boss, while still having the camaraderie of working alongside other passionate, like-minded professionals.


The growth you need

Stability never goes out of style — and neither does shipping! In fact, the shipping industry only continues to grow as more and more consumers take their shopping online. By selling a service that businesses truly need — no matter the state of the economy — you get the peace of mind that comes from working in an essential industry. Pair that with huge industry growth potential (plus residual income from every sale), and you’ve got a winning opportunity for long-term success.


The support you deserve

You’re not afraid of a little hard work – but that doesn’t mean your work has to be hard! As a Unishippers franchise owner, you’re in control of your business, but you’re never alone. With operational support from our corporate team (including training from experienced sales leaders, ongoing leadership calls and more) plus access to comprehensive shipping tools and resources, we provide the operational framework – leaving you free to focus on sales and growing your business.

A Top-Rated 3PL Company

Did you know that Unishippers is an award-winning franchisor? In addition to being ranked #1 in the Shipping Services category in Entrepreneur's Franchise 500, Unishippers continues to be a top franchise due to our low start-up costs, geographic flexibility, strong operational support and more. And our franchisees are giving praise to our franchise model as well, with:

  • 97% of franchisees are likely to invest in the franchise again*
  • 97% of franchisees enjoy being part of Unishippers*
  • 92% of franchisees "agree" or "strongly agree" to respecting the franchisor*

Stake Your Claim in an Industry With Staying Power

The supply chain is being talked about at dinner tables around the world — so why not help lead the conversation with a top third-party logistics (3PL) company? Our 200+ shipping logistics franchises don’t own delivery trucks or physically handle any packages (and neither do we!). Instead, they put their sales and management experience to work, connecting SMBs with complete shipping services — often at much lower costs than they can access on their own. We’re part of the largest non-retail Authorized Reseller of UPS® shipping services in the U.S. and maintain an extensive network of freight shipping partners, so we’re sure to have the tools you need to solve shipping challenges and close sales year after year.

Do you have what it takes to own a Unishippers franchise?

Are you ready to put your sales experience to work and earn residual income on every sale? Do careers in logistics with almost unlimited growth potential sound exciting? Are you a self-starter who’s ready to join an organization filled with competitive, like-minded sales professionals? Then have we got a solution for you! If you’re in search of a business model that fits your goals, and are ready to start looking out for #1 (while also looking out for small business owners like yourself), then a Unishippers franchise could be just what the doctor ordered.


What do our franchise owners have to say?

"With a Unishippers franchise, the startup costs are low, you have partnerships with phenomenal companies — like UPS and leading freight carriers — but you don't have to maintain assets. If you like sales, it's a great culture where the more you put in, the more you get out — the sky's the limit!"

— Janine White, Franchisee since 2003
