7 Delivery Service Success Stories [2023]

7 Delivery Service Success Stories [2023]
Start A Delivery Service

Delivery service refers to a collection of services that deliver goods and products through the land, air, or waterways across locations. The delivery services serve B2B, B2C, and C2C customers.

The growing e-commerce sect and increased cross-border trade are some factors driving the growth of delivery services. Furthermore, consumer preference for online shopping has greatly contributed to the increased demand for delivery services.

To start a delivery service, make sure you have a cargo van, a fully functional website, and meet all the legalities for operating a business in your state.

Here are some real life success stories of starting a delivery service:

1. Velocity International Group ($1.8M/year)

Ben Elizer (from Nashville, TN, USA) started Velocity International Group over 7 years ago.

$150K / month
1 founders / 17 employees

Case Study

My name is Ben Elizer, and I am the Founder and President of Velocity International Group, a full-scale logistics company, offering SameDay delivery, Expediting, Distribution, Fulfillment, andmany Warehousing Services. We offer to consult and some other services as well to help our customers succeed in an ultra-competitive environment. Velocity started with 2 vans and many faces to face conversations. We now have 10+ vehicles, including trucks, and have grown to 25k+ square feet of warehouse space as well to best serve our customers.

Over the past 2 years, our revenue has grown over 300%, which has completely contributed to the great people and culture we have at Velocity. After having to move out of my apartment (because I put everything financially I had into this company), and move back into my mom’s house in my mid 20’s, it was difficult, but just 6 months later we had our first small office and warehouse space. I’m fortunate I had a support system to move back into, or else Velocity might not be here today. The business has grown ever since because of hard work, trust, and relationships. We focus on what is important.


2. Parcelmagic ($60K/year)

Shaerul Haque Joarder (Neel) (from Dhaka) started Parcelmagic over 1 year ago.

$5K / month
3 founders / 50 employees

Case Study

My name is Shaerul H Joarder (Neel), Co-Founder and CEO of Parcelmagic, a delivery service company.

It is indeed a great pleasure that within just 6 months of operation, we have onboarded 100+ merchants, with the monthly transaction being 5000 dollars. Over 10000 parcels are delivered to all 64 districts in Bangladesh each month.
