Next Flight Out (NFO) is an expedited method for transporting time-critical shipments by air. NFO shipping takes advantage of the network of commercial flights which continually crisscross the country. By using the existing air travel network instead of arranging for a dedicated flight, shipments are delivered faster and for less money.
By definition, shipments sent by NFO will be on the very next flight leaving your city. Thus, NFO shipping provides one of the fastest ways to deliver product to almost any destination. In most cases, NFO provides delivery within one day. However, because shipments travel by air, there are some size and weight restrictions with the NFO shipping method.
NFO shipping focuses on speed and extremely well-coordinated air and ground logistics. As soon as you notify the carrier of your pending shipment, the airports nearest the origin and destination are located. Then, the schedules of flights departing and arriving at these airports are quickly examined, along with the drive times to and from each airport. A driver is then immediately dispatched to pick up the shipment, where it is taken to the airport and placed on the optimal flight. As the flight arrives at the destination city, another driver is dispatched to retrieve the shipment and take it to its final delivery point.
