CONUS Shipping

Enhance your government supply chain management with support from CONUS shipping experts

CONUS vs. OCONUS: Both benefit from AIT’s exacting communications, enhanced efficiency

While global transportation logistics needs are rising, especially with the growth of e-commerce, that doesn’t mean a cool-off from U.S. domestic shipping. In fact, since 1990, the total U.S. ton-miles of freight expanded by nearly 83% to 5.77 trillion. And that number is expected to balloon to a whopping 8.28 trillion by 2045.

Read on to learn how AIT’s government supply chain management experts are helping organizations across the nation to navigate the boom—and save on secure, reliable, and fast services and government shipping.

The former is shorthand for the continental United States (i.e., the 49 states, including Alaska and the District of Columbia, but excluding Hawaii). When a delivery is referred to as CONUS, that means its point of origin and destination are within the continental United States. OCONUS adds a “O” for “Outside” and refers to transportation logistics and shipping services outside the continental United States.
