Everything To Know About Domestic Logistics

Many companies, large and small, use domestic logistics techniques to promptly get their products and services into their customers’ hands. However, there are several options and a lot to know about the process overall. 

Domestic Logistics


With this said, simply defining domestic logistics can get very complicated because it involves several moving parts. Luckily, AFP Global Logistics has the answers to all of your important questions. Here is everything to know about domestic logistics:


1. Same Day Shipping Services 


If your business has a time-sensitive package that needs to be scheduled and delivered within one day or less, consider using same-day shipping services. 


At AFP, we have access to over 28,000 domestic flights and will have no issue locating major airports nearest the origin and destination. We will then dispatch a driver to pick up the package, bring it to the airport, and have an agent waiting for it on the other side. The agent will then deliver the parcel to your final destination, or you have the option of picking it up from the airport. 


Either way, AFP will constantly track the package, and you will receive proof of delivery once it arrives at its final destination. 


2. Domestic Air Freight Shipper Services


Another option is to have your package shipped via air freight. For these services, AFP offers next day, second day, third day, or fifth-day delivery. 


Next-Day: We guarantee overnight delivery and next-day delivery anywhere in the United States, 365 days a year, including weekends and holidays. 


Second Day: This option provides door-to-door shipping with delivery within two days to anywhere in the United States. We will provide online tracking and tracing.


Third-Day: Your delivery will arrive by the third business day, and you will be able to track and trace your shipment online.


Fifth Day: When time isn’t a big deal, but your budget is, our economy shipping option is the answer. Your delivery will arrive no later than the 5th day, and we will provide you with online tracking and tracing.


3. Charter Services


In unique circumstances, your business may need a charter service to ship your package domestically. If this is the case, AFP can help. 


We can arrange pickup and delivery for you, assuring that your package will arrive on time. We also offer constant online tracking to monitor the package’s trip.


4. Intermodal Rail Service


If your business has an LCL container load in Baltimore and beyond that needs shipping, shipping via railroad may be the best option for you. 


If you need assistance, AFP can help; our contacts in the railroad shipping network allow us to offer rail service that is safe, convenient, and affordable.
