Cargo2Go is looking to expand its UK operation via the franchising route. Our first franchise began in 2011 with further additions to this franchise operation added in 2014 & 2016, reflecting the success of this business. It is now a thriving and highly respected concern in the Yorkshire area. We now seek to expand the UK network along similar lines in the rest of the UK, with brand new territories available in many major UK cities and business areas
As part of your initial franchise fee, you will be given on the spot training, both office-based and field-based, in how to set up and build your franchise. This comprises site visits from Cargo2Go directors who have proven backgrounds in building successful franchise operations and will share this knowledge with you.
In your first 3 months of trading you will receive 25 days of training.
This will cover, IT set up, software, operational, sales, bookkeeping, customer service, customer retention and marketing.
Thereafter you will have regular refreshers and updates from head office staff, to ensure the smooth running of your franchise.
You should be in the office from 07:30am and set up your various Cargo2Go booking platforms. A typical day will include a combination of operations, whereby you are dealing with, handling and allocating actual jobs that have been booked. On top of that you will have your sales function. This will primarily be field based with you or a member of staff being out on patch, hand delivering leaflets and marketing material to prospective customers.
To back this up you will then need to phone and pitch the Cargo2Go offering to potential customers by way of sales calls.
Plus, you will need to deal with marketing matters, such as mail shots, both electronically and physical mail.
Toward the end of the day you will need to ensure that all jobs are allocated and covered for the next day, plus all jobs for today have been completed and goods delivered with a signed POD.
