Unishippers was included in the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies in 2013 by reducing costs and providing exceptional added value services for small to mid-size businesses. The third party logistics (3PL) industry has steadily grown for well over a decade. The U.S. express industry has grown to over $80 billion and the U.S. freight industry is projected to grow by 63% by 2024. Additionally, because Unishippers provides a B2B service, most franchisees work normal business hours with an equally balanced personal life. Our National Franchise program allows Unishippers franchisees to sell from virtually anywhere in the country. The majority of work is done by phone or online, and geographic boundaries are not limiting factors to how far you can expand your business.
