    Is this possible? How many routes would you approximately need? If you owned one of these ; what happens going forward with fedex ISP agreements?

    No just asking ? A relative of mine owns a large amount of routes and was talking about buying some more. I've been to his house and it's pretty impressive.

    To net $1M means he would have to gross between$50-100M.

    Not happening.

    I've been to houses of people that make 200k a year that are very impressive and to those that make 2 million a year and aren't all that impressive.

    Don't get so caught up on be stuff people have. Worry about yourself.

    Wasn't implying that the house was everything. Sorry! I've researched individual route where netting 65-80 with paperwork backing up. Average fedex ISP drivers are making 40-50 k a year. I'm assuming 60-70 routes

    What is the net profit percentage as a rule on ISP fedex llc this company I'm talking about has 45 routes mostly hd and done ground. No line haul.

    I'd say average is around 5-10%. 45 routes is probably making him $3-400K.

    Wait... What? You really make that little in ISP land?

    I may be on the low end. I've been reinvesting everything for last few years in extra trucks and extra drivers. I'm sure I could make more if I actually drove myself, but who wants to do that?

    With everyone I've talked to, 15-25% net. Those have all been somewhat rural routes. I would assume a large metro area or any high wage area would be a smaller net percentage area.

    My average net on the year is about 19%. After this last agreement and factoring a full year of a couple extra PSAs that were acquired this year it should be closer to 25%.

    How dumb do you think someone would have to be to be in a business that nets 1-2% of their revenue?

    FedEx express profit margin is 2.05%. Or is that the joke?

    No joke Smith's stated goal when the restructuring of express was announced was to get x up to a profit margin of !0% Hasn't made it anywhere close to that. Restructuring ? Where re they getting the money to commit themselves to the purchase of 100 brand new Boeing 767's and 777"s . Ground of course. Check the operating results Without ground X instead of being a $160 stock would be a $70 dollar stock.
