Courier service celebrates £1m sales with office move
A Daventry-based managed courier services business has moved into new premises after achieving £1m in sales in its first year since launching as a World Options franchise.
Part of MBE Worldwide, its shipping portal allows business customers to compare quotes from leading carriers, book deliveries, and then send and track shipments, with customer service provided by a dedicated account manager.
Since launching as a World Options franchise in September 2022, managing director Jack Fisher has expanded the business to a team of four and moved into offices at Signal Park, Daventry, to allow for further expansion.
Fisher said: “When shipping parcels worldwide, businesses can be confounded by the number of options available and can often stick to one courier service, even though that might not be the best option every time.
“World Options helps businesses choose the right option for every individual shipment and provides human customer service to assist with tracking parcels on their journey, based on the higher service level agreements we have in place with all the major couriers. Our bulk-buying power means customers pay the same as they would if booking with couriers directly, whether that be parcels, pallets, freight transport, documents or imports, either nationally or internationally.
“As the global economy gets more and more connected, and with the boom in e-commerce, the courier industry is a very vibrant marketplace and looks set to grow further. Based on our expansion so far, we’re hoping to grow our operations further here in Daventry, potentially creating up to five further jobs over the next three years.”
