Listed as One of Top 200 Franchises
. Business-to-Business Shipping Services Franchise
Recognized by Franchise Times for System-Wide Sales.
SALT LAKE CITY, UT– Unishippers
Global Logistics, LLC, the nation’s first and one of its largest small package and freight shipping resellers, was recently ranked in the 2011 Franchise Times’ Top 200 Franchise Systems. The list compiled the top 200 systems worldwide based on their sales.
In its 12th year of publishing the Top 200, Franchise Times gathered its information through a variety of sources—such as companies’ self-reported data, Securities and Exchange Commission documents, the franchises’ FDDs and other publicly available documents. The franchises
are ranked by system-wide sales, the strongest indicator of a franchise system’s size.
“Being ranked in the Franchise Times’ Top 200 list is definitely impressive, but doing it during a period of economic uncertainly and contraction is remarkable,” said Dan Lockwood, President of Unishippers
Global Logistics, LLC. “With the unmatched shipping options, rates, and customer service that Unishippers provides, we have risen above market conditions and have created sustainable success in this slow economy.”
According to Franchise Times
, one reason the Great Recession was so unusual was the lack of growth in franchising. Bankruptcies were more common than development agreements. During most downturns, franchising
grows as debt prices drop and the unemployed target job opportunities. Unishippers was able to buck that trend.
This is the fourth time that Unishippers
has been named to the rankings. Unishippers was included in Franchise Times Top 200 list in 2007, 2008 and 2009.
