Helping you understand the differences between logistics agent programs
When considering your career options in the transportation and third party logistics (3PL) industries, despite the promises of logistics agent programs, owning your own franchise business really does beat being an agent.
Logistics agent programs have grown quickly in the last decade by offering entrepreneurs the chance to "be your own boss" by reselling transportation services while promoting unlimited earning potential and a low cost of entry. And while the differences in up-front costs are important to note between the two options, the amount of gross profit you keep and long-term growth potential are equally as important points to consider when choosing your career path.
Established franchisors like Unishippers offer unique benefits that logistics agent programs can't. Here are just a few of the ways franchising trumps logistics agent programs:
Franchise owners keep the majority of the gross profit they earn.
Franchise owners create equity and can ultimately sell their business.
Franchise owners receive upfront training as well as ongoing support and resources.
