Fast Package Delivery refers to the transportation of freight over transpacific distances in a period of hours, and provides opportunity for synergistic development with reusable launch vehicle and HSCT technologies. Previous analyses of this topic have not recognized the bifurcation in the market and system requirements of a Fast Package Delivery service. This market is dichotomized as scheduled service, for less urgent items, operating similar to existing delivery services, and on-demand service, a charter type system for extremely time-sensitive commodities such as assembly line parts. Each of these solutions to the Fast Package Delivery issue has different market and system characteristics.
