In order to determine your target route price for FedEx Ground routes, you need to consider what type of down payment you can make. Additionally, you should think through your take-home pay expectations.
In our industry we refer to the period of time between the beginning of November and the end of December as peak season. Inside of peak season there is a critical three to four weeks—roughly from Thanksgiving to Christmas—of exceptional package volume. Some contractors make one-third of their annual profits in peak season.
More than 600 contractors to FedEx Ground and business partners convened in Nashville, Tennessee on September 13 for the 2019 Contractor Expo + Party hosted by Route Consultant. The event featured industry-specific presentations, display booths, and networking opportunities.

I could have never done this without Route Consultant. The information and training I received was invaluable. Your response time for email and phone calls was prompt, making me always feel like a priority. We always felt like they had our best interests in mind … Everyone at Route Consultants feels like family now.

Within the last few weeks I have been to two events you have put on and I've been blown away! I learned so much even though I'm already a contractor.

Route Consultant did a very good job helping me evaluate my business for the listing and then working with both the buyer and myself to get us across the finish line.

Every team member we met along every step of the way provided the expertise, education and contacts we required to evaluate listings and successfully acquire our routes. [Connecting with Route Consultant] was our first and most important step.

One word that makes RC stand out: integrity. They've delivered what they promised, made themselves available, and guided me through every step (big and small) with practical, yet brilliant advice.

I’m not sure how anyone seriously looking at FedEx would confidently buy a route without first engaging with your team. The initial learning curve is rather steep for an ‘outsider.’

No one knows FedEx better than Route Consultant. We were extremely impressed by their diligence and professionalism in marketing the business, and they brought that same approach to bear in closing the deal.
