Diamond logistics franchise information

Kate Lester was working for a courier company back in 1992 when she had a lightbulb moment. She thought “I can do better than this”, and so she decided to start her very own 24/7 courier service. Ten years later she had grown such a successful business that she decided to make Diamond available for franchising.

Diamond Logistics now has a national family of depots led by its franchises, providing a quality of client care that is first class. Not only this, but Diamond Logistics is the only franchise to offer three service provisions: express delivery, overnight and international consignments and fulfilment. Having access to three services means you’ve got three income streams resulting in a more stable and profitable business.

So, whether you’re looking to become your own boss or want to add services to your existing courier business, a Diamond Logistics franchise could be the perfect opportunity for you.

Here is some more information about this exciting franchise opportunity.

Case study

Hon Leung started his Diamond Logistics franchise in Bournemouth in 2015 and hasn’t looked back since. But what was the driving force for Hon to buy a courier franchise? The answer is frustration.

Hon had worked as a master subcontractor for courier businesses since 2006 for companies such as Yodel, Interlink and UK Mail. Life was busy with 35 vans and more than 45 drivers to manage each day. But the pressure of the job came without the financial benefits and Hon became frustrated with the fact that he was a crucial part of a courier company yet someone else was reaping the rewards.

So, Hon looked into a franchise opportunity with Diamond Logistics and is very glad that he did. Hon was impressed with the whole franchise system including the IT, finance, marketing and training support that he received.

And it’s as a result of this support that has enabled Hon to grow his business 100% month on month during the first quarter of trading. And Hon is finally getting rewarded for his hard work. In fact, the harder he works, the more he earns. He’s able to set his own margins, and there is no upper limit on how much he can expand his business.

The Diamond team are supportive and ambitious and have helped Hon to become one of the most successful franchises in a very short space of time.
