How does the selling price of the route get determined?

FedEx owners determine the selling price of their route by using a multiple of their yearly cash flow/net income. Routes that are turnkey with a full-time manager in place sell for a higher multiple.

What are the company requirements?

FedEx requires a third-party background check; you must have no felonies and a decent driving record. Additionally, 1 year of driving experience of a similar delivery vehicle you intend to drive within the last 3 years, or 5 years within the last 10 years if operating as an owner/driver of the business. If you do not meet these requirements, owners can now bypass the required experience by taking an approved FedEx course to qualify as drivers. Owners do not need to meet this requirement if they don’t intend to drive.

Do I have to sign a contract?

Yes, as an independent distributor you sign a service agreement to represent FedEx. The contract is to protect both the company and its distributors.

What about vacation time or personal days for drivers?

As an independent distributor/business owner you are responsible for servicing the route. It is our recommendation that you hire or train someone for additional time needed off. Additionally, you can network and hire distributors with previous route experience at  Route Relief Drivers is a nationwide network that allows independent route distributors and vacation relief drivers to connect with each other. Each party negotiates its own terms and compensation.

What is required in order to qualify for purchase?

Typically, most company routes or distributorships will require you to attend an interview for approval from the company, background check, and form an entity (must be an INC.).
