Business Overview

Express4U Limited is a new company planning on opening a new courier business in the centre of a thriving town with 763 local small and medium-sized businesses.

Mr Douglas Streatham founded Express4U Limited. He has 16 years of working as a senior courier for major delivery companies, including TNT, UPS, and DHL.

Mr Stratham is now going to set up Express4U Couriers.

The company is targeting businesses that require a local same-day personal package delivery service and other international options utilising the three largest national companies.

Mr Streatham will operate vehicles to pick up and deliver goods around the town and for overseas packages. Mrs Tania White is the administrator and manages customer enquiries, international bookings and tracking requests.

Market and Competitors

There is currently no local delivery option within a 12 mile radius of our offices. The main brands already service the local area, but we believe we’ll acquire the international deliveries due to our bulk purchasing power.

Services Offered

Express4U Couriers will be a reliable, value for money business offering unrivalled personal service with the following product offerings:

  • Same-day local delivery.
  • UK-wide delivery using national companies.
  • International delivery using global companies.

Three-Year Forecast

Gross revenues are forecast at £121,325 for the first year of operation with this increasing by 10-12% for the subsequent two years. Net profits are forecast to be a 29% margin before tax and interest. The vans used will be via a leasing contract.

Start-up Requirements

Express4U Limited is a newly incorporated company set up and run by Mr Streatham, who has 16 years of experience in the courier business.

Investment funds of £20,000 are to be paid into the business at the beginning of the year to cover start-up costs and initial cash flow requirements. The company will repay this amount by the end of the first year.

“I needed to put together a long-term business plan to cover all aspects of my new venture. I read a lot of books and attended courses, but I was struggling. Then I came across Teneric and suddenly it was all there in a format I could use and in terminology I could understand. After that, it was plain sailing to the Business Department at my local HSBC Bank”

Jill Shilcock, Managing Director, SEAS Education Advisory Service Limited.

“I wanted ideas for the type of information that needed covering in a business plan, and this gave me a template for the document I submitted to the bank. The business loan we were after was approved. If you have never written a business plan before, then I would recommend your product. It was very straightforward and offered some good advice.”

Gordon Mitchell, UK

“I needed a business plan quickly. The template was easy to use, just fill in the blanks on the wizard and refer to the help guide if I wasn't sure. Your system is good value, and I would recommend them to everyone needing a plan. Attached is the basic plan I threw together in a day for the bank. They specifically wanted cash flow projections, and the Excel spreadsheets were really what I was after from your product.”

John Waterhouse, UK
