They also provide proprietary software that makes running your franchise easy. Navis Pack & Ship will also typically help you to identify the most suitable site for your franchise.

This franchisor may also help you choose qualified personnel for your franchise. The company also provides extensive training for your team, including a few dozen hours of on-the-job training, nearly double that of classroom training, and several online courses.

What Might Make a Navis Pack & Ship a Good Choice?

A typical term of agreement runs for a renewable period of 20 years. The company also provides exclusive territories to reduce competition.

To be part of the Navis Pack & Ship team, you should make sure you're financially ready for an initial investment made up of a franchise fee and other startup costs.

How To Open a Navis Pack & Ship Franchise

As you decide if you want to open a Navis Pack & Ship franchise, make sure you take time to explore the opportunity. Research the brand and your local area to see if a franchise would do well in your community. While competition is healthy, too much may not allow for the most possible growth.

Navis Pack & Ship will assist you in selecting your franchise location and vetting your employees. Then, you and your team will be trained on how to run the franchise with classroom sessions and on-the-job training at one of the company's warehouses.

After completing the training, you will need to pay the initial fee and sign the various legal documents. This will mark the start of your journey to owning and operating a Navis Pack & Ship franchise.
