Unishippers Global Logistics, LLC, the nation’s first and one of the largest small package and freight shipping resellers, has been named a top franchise opportunity for U.S. Veterans in the annual Military Times “Best for Vets: Franchises” rankings, coming in at no. 36. This is the third consecutive year the company has been named a top veteran-friendly franchise.
The Military Times ranking was based on a comprehensive survey asking franchises to reflect on their company culture, performance of existing franchise units, investment level and other beneficial support offered to veteran and active-duty service members.
“We enjoy seeing time again how compatible our business model is with the skill set and discipline that veterans gain during their military training,” said Kevin Lathrop, CEO and President of Unishippers Global Logistics. “In addition to the 20 percent franchise fee discount, Unishippers is always looking for ways to make the transition into logistics a smooth and rewarding business venture for veterans by providing ongoing resources and support.”
For veterans eager to jump into a proven system, Unishippers has shown steady annual growth, with system-wide revenues reaching upwards of $450 million and the addition 20 new franchise owners last year.
