Global logistics firm InXpress restructures Asia Pacific business
Global courier and freight sales consulting franchise InXpress Asia Pacific is restructuring.
InXpress has offices in India, Hong Kong, Vietnam, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand but it is set to establish its Australian business as the lead for the region and is relocating its Philippines operations to its corporate head office in Queensland.
Lindsay Birley, CEO, InXpress Asia Pacific said “This is the strongest management team we’ve ever had in place and we’ve witnessed another leap in service quality to the entire country operation, new sets of initiatives and an increase in the quality of communication to franchisees and customers alike."
The restructure is designed to set the platform for a sustainable model of intra-company (internally managed) training and education.
.InXpress Asia Pacific currently has 101 franchisees across the six countries and is expanding at about four per month with a total of more than 40 franchisees in Australia projected by the end of the year.
Sales growth in the Asia Pacific region has been steady for the past three years averaging 34 percent p.a. and growth is forecasted to continue given expansion plans and extended services offerings.
Further expansion for 2017 is not finalised as yet but countries currently under review within the region include Indonesia, Japan and China. South Korea recently transferred from a licence operation to a franchise model and plans are in place to appoint the first franchisees in Q4 of this year.
