And since our franchises are only as successful as the companies we support, we're uniquely invested in your success.
Franchisee Spotlight: Kurt Watkins
Unishippers franchisee Kurt Watkins worked with the WWEX group of brands as an in-house representative before starting his own logistics franchise. Now, with a handful of representatives on his team, Watkins helps companies across the country manage their business shipping. And, as a small business owner himself, he has a unique perspective unlike others in the marketplace.
“We’ll work with owners who really see the value in what we do who run small businesses. Especially as a small business owner myself, we sit down with them as someone who is looking at it the same way that they do and say, ‘You could reduce costs here, improve efficiency there, get visibility on x, y or z."

See What Our Customers Have to Say: Keeperstop, Sports Equipment Provider
Keeperstop, an online soccer equipment retailer, began working with Unishippers after more than 10 years of challenges dealing directly with carriers, including missing packages and an overall lack of SMB support. Since then, the company has overcome these challenges and more, thanks to the support and expertise of their Unishippers franchise.
“My Unishippers franchise made me feel like they cared. I know I’m not one of Unishippers’ largest customers, but they never made me feel like that. From a problem-solving and a relationship standpoint, it’s always been easy. A small business owner like me can still feel important within the Unishippers network.”
