Courier Business Plan

Business Plan Articles

If you are starting a courier business, you may need to acquire capital for the fixed assets and infrastructure of the business. A custom courier business plan will help to reflect what is unique about your courier business and how it will effectively enter the market. Pro Business Plans has worked with many courier companies to create professional plans for investment. This article provides information about what is included in the plan and how it is structured.

Courier Business Plan

A custom courier business will require extensive investments for transportation equipment, staff training, and fulfillment centers. A courier should have a strong idea of the fixed costs associated with the route schedule and the revenue associated with it. This will help to determine the return on assets and help investors to better forecast returns. Aside from the financial projections, the courier should also provide information on the company’s business model and marketing plan.

Business Model

The business model for a courier business plan will depend on what the courier will deliver and what market it will focus on. Some couriers, for instance, focus on the business segment and sensitive documents. The price is higher, but the courier has extra investments in security and expedited service. Others may focus on the low price end of the market and have minimal expenditures and a very lean supply chain for targeting the mainstream market.




Marketing Plan

The marketing section of the courier business plan outlines how the company will acquire customers at a very lower cost. This typically includes mass marketing if it is targeting the mainstream market or personal selling in the business to business market. There is not substantial marketing required for a courier company unless it has an innovative business model, as the marketing will only increase the cost of the logistics and make the company less competitive.




Financial Projections

The financial projections for a courier company should be based on the pricing strategy of the company and present demand forecasts. These may be determined based on the proximity of operations, amount of infrastructure to determine the capacity, and overall expenses. If the company has no prior operating history, it may base the financial projections based on the sales of similar couriers in the area.
