Other Shipping Services

Air Freight

For special situations, such as large packages or packages that must be delivered to another city the same day, air freight services are available from many airlines and specialty air freight companies. Some have special offices at the airport for same-day shipments. These shipments must usually be dropped off at the freight office and picked up at the destination freight office. The fees are much higher than other next-day air and two-day air shipments.

Bus Freight

Most passenger bus lines provide a freight service, often useful for moving packages to small towns that are not served by other shipping services. Packages are taken along with passenger baggage and unloaded at the bus station at the intended destination. The recipient must pick up the package at the station.
