Count on AIT's Secure, Trusted OCONUS Shipping Solutions
With strong demand for manufacturing exports, increased penetration of advanced technologies and the continued e-Commerce boom, international shipping needs for air freight alone are on pace to grow through at least 2024.
Read on to learn how AIT can help your government agency, public company or private firm navigate the complex global logistics landscape, including international government shipping.
What is OCONUS shipping versus CONUS shipping?
OCONUS is shorthand for “outside the continental United States,” and refers to transportation logistics and shipping services outside the continental United States.
Conversely, CONUS drops the O for “outside” and refers to shipments with a point of origin and destination within the continental United States (i.e., the 49 states, including Alaska and the District of Columbia and excluding Hawaii, on the North American continent).
