New, Economical Courier Service Opens In Halifax… The Fastway!

Tuesday, January 02, 2007

Fastway Couriers Atlantic now has vans rolling down the streets of Halifax and the surrounding areas, bringing big business discounts to small business owners. Regional Franchisee, Ainslie Hart, is pleased to announce that he and his team of Courier Franchisees are already hard at work delivering packages for their new customers and they're on the hunt for more…lots more! Fastway Couriers was founded in 1983, and began franchising just one year later. Currently, Fastway is franchised in 11 countries and is the largest domestic courier service in Australia. It is also the largest Courier Franchise System in the world with over 1500 franchisees and has been the recipient of many prestigious industry and franchising awards. Ainslie is delighted to add the Atlantic Region to the Fastway Canada network of operating Canadian franchises in Edmonton, Calgary, London, Kitchener, Hamilton, Niagara, Barrie, Oshawa and Toronto. Fastway Couriers takes a systematic "divide and conquer" approach to growing their business. Regional Franchisees own perpetual and exclusive rights for an entire metropolitan area of Canada and each Courier Franchisee is awarded the territorial rights for a part of the region. The biggest difference between Fastway and its competitors is the Courier Franchisees themselves. They are not only owner operators, but they actually own their routes. Working together, they provide their customers with exceptional service at a very competitive rate and when Courier Franchise territories are built to the point where they cannot get any more packages in their vans, the franchisees can split off a section and sell it for a profit. Courier Franchises are available in many regions and are awarded on a first come first "considered" basis with the best territories going first. Candidates to be awarded a franchise are friendly, outgoing people who want to be their own boss and profit from their own efforts. Those who are interested in the remaining ground floor opportunities will need to act fast because there are not many territories left and the phones ring everyday with enquiries. At Fastway, there is no problem finding customers. President of Fastway Couriers Canada, Doug Faulkner says, "I am pleased to say that the market place is rapidly accepting our low cost service and several new customers are added every day. We will soon move our 1,000,000th package and we are happy to have Fastway Couriers Atlantic adding to these numbers daily." Ainslie adds, "Additional customers are added quickly because Fastway has a very simple, no frills system. We offer flat rates to deliver packages anywhere in our service area through our easy to use prepaid label system. This allows our customers to know the cost of shipping before they send their goods so, with Fastway they are now in complete control of their courier costs." Ainslie's goal is to ramp up the business quickly and award the remaining two territorial franchises as soon as possible. His many years of experience in logistics will serve him well as he builds the Atlantic portion of a comprehensive ground network within Canada.
