Franchise Profile — Parcel Plus
Parcel Plus provides pack-and-ship and cargo services for consumers, small businesses and home-based businesses.
Technological advancement has led to the growth of the home-based business market. Parcel Plus has positioned itself to become the secondary offices for these entrepreneurs who don't want to have copiers, fax machines and postal meters cluttering their homes. In addition, they may not have the supplies or the time to ship products related to their business.
Parcel Plus also services cargo customers that have items too large or bulky to ship via carriers like FedEX or others. Typically a common carrier or moving company has shipping requirements which include that an item be crated, and have minimum fees. Parcel Plus uses carriers that do not charge the minimum or pick up fees. Parcel Plus can also handle the crating required so the customer doesn't have to deal with it. Insurance is also available for the item being shipped.
This is a niche market with growing demand. Parcel Plus, with the assistance of its affiliated parent company ICED, has developed a selling and marketing system to grow this market.
