Picture this: You run a small, but mighty mortgage company in St Louis that relies on printed copies of legal documents and your older printer/copier stops working. You have customers who are ready to close on their new home and you need a new machine ASAP! So you shop around for one that will do the job without breaking the bank. But the best deal you can find is two states away and you really can’t wait for the three days it would take for it to get to you. Is there a way to do this?
How about this: You run a local medical supply company in St Louis and are contacted by a hospital that needs sensitive medical equipment in order to provide specialized care to a patient. They are in Wyoming and they need it “yesterday!” Can you make it happen?
In both cases, the answer is Yes! With Zipp Express’s Next Flight Out delivery Service. Let’s look at what Next Flight Out is, how it works, and what it can do for you and your business!
What Is A Next Flight Out Delivery Service?
Businesses that make their living by getting time-sensitive shipments to customers without delay often rely on shippers that offer Next Flight Out (NFO) shipping. The shipper coordinates with airlines and other delivery partners to ensure that packages, freight, and parcels are delivered as soon as humanly possible by putting them on the next available flight to their destination.
How does Next Flight Out work?
In the case of our small, but mighty mortgage company, they would place the NFO order with a shipper like Zipp Express that would send it to an airport to put on the next plane (Next Flight Out). The flight would land in Lambert International Airport, where it will be recovered by Zipp Express and delivered directly to your mortgage company.
The St Louis-based medical supply company would be on the other end of that service. They would contact Zipp Express and place an order for Next Flight Out Delivery service. Our specialist would locate the next flight going to the destination and arrange to put it on that plane. As we always do, we’d send our specially trained crews to collect the medical equipment from the medical supply location and transport it directly to the airport terminal. From there, it would be loaded on the plane and flown to the city where the hospital is located.
Zipp Express’s drivers and crews are all TSA approved—meaning they’ve already passed all background checks and are certified to go directly to the terminal and unload or load freight and don’t have to sit in line. Your trust is important to us. You never have to worry about who is handling your valuable shipment while we have it. Zipp Express does extensive background checks on all employees and we provide careful training to all drivers and set up crews. In fact, we can provide special training upon request if yours is especially fragile equipment.
The size and shape of your freight doesn’t matter. Zipp Express can accommodate you without compromising on the care your shipment will receive while in transit. Our fleet includes a wide range of transport vehicles from flatbed tractor trailers to box trucks to cars. And we deliver pretty much everything from backhoes to dry goods to flowers.
Our Next Flight Out Delivery Service is the best in St Louis (at least). We never skimp, never charge you for a larger vehicle when a smaller one will do. And we both pick up and deliver to all the St Louis Metro area and within a 150-mile radius. Zipp Express is conveniently located just one-mile west of I-270 off I-70, less than ten minutes from the St. Louis Lambert Airport. This makes for easy access to the airport for pick up and delivery.
We offer other specialty services we can easily combine with sensitive shipments such as medical or large office equipment. For instance, when you pair it with our White Glove delivery services, we can send trained personnel to deliver and set up your equipment and clear away the packing materials afterwards.
How to arrange for next flight out delivery
While we can’t speak to how other companies do it, arranging for our Next Flight Out delivery services is as simple as picking up the phone and calling us. Our drivers are available for delivery and pick up 24/7. Whether you need a shipment recovered from the St Louis airport and delivered to you or you need us to pick up your shipment and take it to the airport to be put on a plane, we’ve got people and the transportation to do the job. Zipp Express will immediately dispatch a driver and whatever transport that’s needed to pick up your shipment and deliver it to the airport.
Or we can pick it up from the airport at any hour and deliver it to you immediately or hold it at our 40,000 square foot warehouse until you or your client is ready for it. If your shipment is especially sensitive, we can store it in our 2,000-square feet of caged space. This space is secured with swipe card technology and 24-hour security cameras.
