THE EVOLUTION OF ZONE-SKIPPING
Over the years, some high-volume fulfillment centers have discovered a way to save on carrier costs when shipping across the country. Small parcels from NY to LA, for example, could be consolidated on pallets, moved by LTL, and inducted into carriers network at the destination for final mile delivery. This process required a little more planning but resulted in impressive savings. The zone skipping approach has become more common recently, with more shippers taking advantage of the savings.
With techSHIP, the process of zone skipping has been raised to the next level. techSHIP introduced the AirSKIP service, an evolution of zone skipping. With AirSKIP, the middle mile delivery from a fulfillment center to the final zone is done using an extensive air network that includes a dedicated air cargo carrier and extra cargo capacity on passenger flights.
