Because the Festo Assured Shipping Time (FAST) program ensures that products will be shipped on the same day the order is placed or by the third day, depending on the type of product selected, it reduces inventory costs and time-to-market for prototypes and production equipment.
Thousands of Festo pneumatic components are covered by the FAST program. The online FAST program catalog lists all eligible products and respective one- or three-day ship times. Same-day shipping is typical for standard components, including: pneumatic cylinders and actuators; pneumatic valves; sensors; air preparation units; and fittings/flow controls/tubing/silencers.
Three-day shipping is offered for the program’s custom-length cylinders and actuators, combination air preparation units, and valve manifolds.
Orders must be received by 12 p.m. Eastern time and next day delivery is available. Festo guarantees “on time or it’s shipped free” reimbursement of shipping charges for qualified FAST program orders. Guarantee details can be found in the FAST catalog and on the FAST webpage.
Festo’s online shop provides additional services to lower costs and improve productivity. Once registered, visitors can download 2D and 3D CAD models of components, view pricing and availability, place orders, and track order status.
“It’s widely recognized that Festo electric and pneumatic motion systems are among the highest quality and performance in the world,” said Richard Huss, Festo CEO. “More is needed today, however, for lowest total cost of ownership and these services include world class training, technical, and logistics support. Festo earns trusted supplier status through superior product engineering, support, and other essential services.”
