Bill McGowan has had tremendous success expanding his courier franchise in Australia and New Zealand. The business, which was established in 1983, has a clear niche - concentrating on market segments that are ignored by large courier companies.
When Fastway started, its large competitors focused on high-yield, fast metropolitan delivery. McGowan saw the need for a metropolitan area service for those parcels that did not require instant delivery. He managed to make his service cheaper than the competition by introducing innovations such as pre-paid labels. Fewer staff were needed for administration and chasing bad debts.
By 1999, McGowan decided the company was large enough and solid enough to look at overseas expansion. During the next two years, he spent about $2 million researching opportunities in various countries. By hiring students to talk to potential customers and visit competitors, he discovered that good expansion opportunities existed in Asia and Europe.
To establish his business in each new market, McGowan decided to add another tier to his two-tier franchise system. The first tier is the courier franchise who is granted exclusive territory by Fastway to pick up and deliver parcels within that territory. The couriers converge daily at a depot where the parcels for other areas are exchanged. The next tier is the regional franchisee who provides the depots and other business services.
McGowan’s third tier is the master franchisee, who is granted the rights to the Fastway system for an entire country. He says: "It is too time consuming to go to each country and grant a franchise one by one."
