PACK & SEND Franchise Revenue Streams
PACK & SEND’s unique multi-channel business model enables you to earn revenue through both active and residual income streams. Active income streams is the income you receive when you actively participate in the work to provide the service from your service centre. In contrast, residual income is cash flow received on a regular basis that requires minimal effort to maintain it and is primarily derived from PACK & SEND’s technology and ecommerce solutions.
ACTIVE INCOME STREAMS
PACK & SEND’s personalised services extend to the convenience of customers dropping off their goods at the Service Centre (or option of pick-up from the door), tailored solutions, address labelling of parcels, document preparation, loss and damage warranty cover, delivery follow up and proactive track & trace.
PACK & SEND sell a full range of cartons, cushioning material and tape for those customers that want to pack their goods themselves.
PACK & SEND provide a professional packaging service for customer’s goods. PACK & SEND employ state-of-the-art packaging techniques and are the experts in handling goods that are fragile, large, awkward and valuable.
With the eCommerce boom, more and more business are outsourcing their product fulfillment. A consequence of this growing demand is that a large proportion of PACK & SEND Service Centres hold stock for such customers offering a pick, pack and delivery service. Our PACK & SEND Live software includes micro-fulfillment capabilities. Micro-fulfillment is the concept of a network of small format fulfillment facilities in accessible urban locations that are close to the end-consumer, where consumers can have their items delivered in as little as one hour after they place an online order. Under PACK & SEND’s micro-fulfillment solution national customers will also be able to understand their inventory in real time across the PACK & SEND network, have the capability to transfer stock between PACK & SEND locations and optimise their order processing – all from PACK & SEND’s proprietary technology platform that’s available anytime, anywhere on any device.
Consumer demand is changing. Consumers value fast, flexible delivery and expect parcel delivery to match other parallel consumption experiences (e.g. Uber, Menu-Log, Domino’s Pizza and the like). PACK & SEND is ideally positioned to meet these needs with a premium home delivery service. Our Service Centres can act as an urban ‘consolidation and despatch’ facility that accepts parcels from courier companies for last mile distribution to homes. PACK & SEND can consign these parcels to be delivered to homes at flexible times using our point-to-point carriers.
PACK & SEND offer a parcel receiving and collection service to both its customers and courier companies, allowing customers to collect their parcel at our Service Centres at their convenience. This happens when a resident is not home to receive a parcel being delivered by a courier, or the customer selects a PACK & SEND as an alternate delivery location.
PACK & SEND is Australia's leading and most recognised parcel courier and freight delivery reseller. With the benefit of our proprietary technology (GMx) and strong carrier partnerships, we give customers access to multiple freight, courier and shipping services that save our customers time, trouble and money.
Our Service Centres have PACK & SEND van that offer a wide range of local pick-up options. These can include Pick-Up services that are flexible, on call urgent, day and time specific, and out-of-hours.
RESIDUAL INCOME STREAMS
