RDS: courier franchise opportunities

Diamond Logistics doesn’t sell courier franchises.

We do have Network Partner opportunities, but they aren’t for everyone.

You have to have experience in logistics, you need to know you’ll be responsible for your own business development, you will need premises – this is not a run from home opportunity – it’s a “build a substantial business” opportunity, and we know it’s not for everyone.

That is why we are providing those looking for a courier franchise some options to take a look at.

If you want to find out more about our Network Partnership, then visit our dedicated page here.

But if you don’t have any of the above and are still looking for a franchise, why not take a look at one of our chosen options.


Introducing RDS

According to them, RDS Global Solutions are a multi-carrier provider of courier and logistical services and their courier franchise opportunity is “An exciting and rewarding future that you control”.

They provide a simple & cost-effective, online shipping and courier service for businesses, as well as having partnered with the world’s leading carriers in order to offer discounted rates in combination with instant online comparisons, integrations and shipping automations, all in one place. This Is via – a Dutch company.

This franchise opportunity gives you, “Industry leading, best in class technology”, enabling RDS franchisees to provide their customers with a multi-carrier service offering, obtaining instant quotes from their multiple carrier partners, and enabling them to book & track shipments all in one place.

RDS say, “Thanks to our excellent relationships with our carrier partners, coupled with the significant consolidated spend, our franchisees can offer their customers significantly better shipping rates, than those they’ll be able to procure directly.

With a much better user experience and greater choice in shipping options, you’ll be saving your customers significant time and money every time, meaning almost every small to medium-sized business that uses couriers and shipping services will be an opportunity for you”.

They list the benefits as:

  • No restrictive territories – No warehouse. No vehicles. Work from home offering RDS Services throughout the UK.
  • Uncapped earning potential – By using their proven model, you will be able to earn a significant residual income.
  • Continuous support & training – They heavily invest in the training and development support of their franchisees and staff.
  • Industry-leading technology – Their industry-leading technology, will help you to win new business & customers time and time again.
  • Multi-carrier solutions with 1200+ options – Their innovative multi-carrier platform will allow you to manage all your customer requirements in one place.
  • Save customers time & money – They provide customers with the opportunity to choose whichever carrier option suits them, saving them both time and money.
  • Centralised billing & operational support – As they manage the invoicing process, this will free you up to focus on growing your business & building your customer relationships.

Finally, they give a franchisee testimonial from Darren Barnard, from Medway. “Since owning my franchise with RDS, my life has literally changed. Not only do I have the freedom to run my business around my own lifestyle, but I’m helping to grow my own business rather than doing it for someone else. Needless to say, the earning potential is huge and not just for 12 months, but for the life my franchise. It really is the best business decision that I have ever made!”

We also know the guys involved – Warren Ferguson (ex-World Options) and David Drake (ex-CitySprint) and they are experienced in the market.

So if you are looking for a courier franchise, have no experience and want to run your business from your bedroom then this may well be the franchise for you.
