Are you interested in starting a courier service business? Do you need a sample courier business plan template? Then here’s a detailed guide on how to start a courier business from scratch.

Now for those who don’t know what a courier service business is or stands for, a courier service is a business company that moves packages from one location to another for a fee. Popular courier brands that have gone beyond just courier and delivery to full time haulage and logistics include UPS, FEDEX, DHL, ABC Courier, etc.

Opening a courier business can be a lucrative opportunity, but there are practical things to put into considerations and logistics to be taken into account but you may tend to overlook them. So without wasting your time, below are the steps to starting a successful courier company.

1. Prepare a business plan

Draft out a comprehensive business plan following the guidelines available from your local Small Business Association popularly known as (Business Centre Association), and pay special attention to financial management details.

2. Decide the type of parcels you will be delivering

The next step to starting a courier business is to decide if your service will be limited to envelopes and small packages or large cargoes. Naturally, your decision will depend on the capacity of your storage and transportation vehicles. Will you will be delivering sensitive cargoes such as medical and industrial chemicals? If yes, then you and your crew must be knowledgeable in handling and conveying such substances.

You may also choose to deliver perishable goods. However, you must bear in mind that this cargo is always time sensitive, so your manpower resources and transportation must be adequate. You have to make your units to be well known. Your ability to deliver a wide variety of cargo will augment your potential to earn. However, you should expect to spend more initial capital. For instance, to successfully deliver perishable goods, you may need to invest in refrigerated trucks for it.

3. Decide on the scope for your service area

Getting shuffled

Other services, like 1&1, that have multiple levels of service depending on what you pay, will move (without warning or consent, as the service agreement allows them to) your site to a slower server when business for higher paying customers demands more space on the faster servers. This is quite legal, and very typical of these types of service providers. That's why we switched to Bluehost.
What you would experience is slow downs in your site loading, possibly even timing out before loading if the server load is heavy. You might also experience delay in e-mail delivery due to server space availabilities

USPS Closing Petition - Sign!


As many of you have probably heard, despite all of our hard work the Postmaster General of the United States has unilaterally decided to ignore Congressional and public recommendations and begin the process of doing away with the current delivery standards for virtually all classes of mail.
As a component of the plan to severely downgrade delivery standards, the Postal Service has unveiled a plan to close 250 Processing Plants and thousands of Post Offices throughout the United States of America starting immediately

Setting Up Shop/Advertising and Venture Capital

So you are l8 and want to be an independent
contractor/jewelry designer but you don't want overhead costs, right? Approach jewelery stores (Cartier, Tiffany. Macy, Nordstrom, Target, Walmart, Walgreens, Avon ) and see if your products interest them. Of course, you'll have to be able to guarantee production, delivery and payment terms. They may only decide to buy from you per lot and not accord you continuing
vendor status. But try anyway - it's very good
experience to talk to commercial buyers. If that interface has occurred as I suspect.
you'll need to learn much more about business, a la pro-active adult style
