The Festo FAST program, which covers thousands of products, reduces inventory costs and shrinks time-to-market for prototypes and production equipment
Hauppage, NY December 11, 2012
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. Thousands of Festo pneumatic components are covered by the FAST program. This innovative program lowers customer inventory costs and shortens time to market for prototypes and production machines.
The online FAST program catalog lists all eligible products and respective one or three day ship times. Same day shipment is typical for standard components, including:
*Pneumatic cylinders and actuators
*Air preparation units
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 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.
