Fastway Couriers has again won the prestigious International Franchisor of the Year Award, the second time in three years.

The company puts the new win down im part to its "game-changing" Blu Couriers and Parcel Connect services.

Its focus on future-proofing its franchisees’ businesses so they are optimally placed to benefit from Australia’s $10 billion-plus e-commerce revolution and meet customers’ needs proved a key factor in the recognition at the National Franchise Convention, it says.

"With three in every four Australians shopping online, and given our business’ rapid transition from B2B to B2C, Fastway Couriers is continually looking for ways to best meet the needs of our franchisees and their customers," Fastway Couriers Australia CEO Peter Lipinski says.

"We’ve transformed our thinking here at Fastway as we continue to evolve in order to help our regional franchisees and 1000 courier franchisees capture more of the e-commerce market and better manage the growing volume of deliveries while also growing their business."

"We’re delighted to be named the International Franchisor of the Year and would like to thank all of our dedicated and hardworking staff and franchisees who continually go above and beyond to deliver the best for our customers."

Fastway Courier’s ability to leapfrog their franchisees’ businesses ahead of trends is fuelled in a large part by the company’s connections to disruptive market leader, international courier and logistics company Aramex, it states.

Aramex, which operates in over 60 countries, bought Fastway Couriers in January 2016, providing the business and its franchisees with access to world-leading research, resources and expertise.
