Don’t be afraid of using debt/leverage to buy these businesses. These FedEx routes for sale can sustain a higher debt load than what some other businesses allow. Typically, your finance source will require a down payment of 20% or more. With a 20% down payment you lever your business 4:1. You have 1 part down payment and 4 parts debt.
Our current portfolio of Active and Under Contract routes have an average list price of approximately $760,000.
While a very profitable business, FedEx route businesses do not generate profit margins of 30% or more. As you look to buy a FedEx route, look for P&D businesses with profit margins between 15 and 20% of revenue. These are healthy businesses!
