First Flight Solutions

8002 Emerald Drive, Suite B, Emerald Isle, NC 28594



First Flight Solutions specializes in carrier negotiations and post audit recovery. FFS shows how to save money, obtain better discounts and identify hidden areas of cost saving opportunities through network optimization and reporting. There are no hidden fees or upfront costs, if we do not reduce cost, we do not get paid. It is definitely a “win-win.”
From the ever escalating surcharges to discounts based on revenue bands, parcel transportation expense is an area that represents a savings opportunity. The staff at FFS has over 165 years of UPS and FedEx senior executive level management experience, negotiating contracts on behalf of carriers. We have references that can validate positive results which represent savings ranging from 15-25%
