NextFlightShipping brings together Travelers and Senders
NextFlightShipping Applications and Services make possible a connection between those individuals and/or businesses that want to contract with someone to pick-up, carry and/or deliver personal property and goods (“Senders “) and those individuals and/or businesses seeking to perform the pick-up, carrying and delivery services requested by a Sender (“Travelers “). The performance of pick-up, carrying and delivery services by a Traveler, the time period in which these services are performed by a Traveler, as well as the item(s) of personal property and goods being picked-up, carried and/or delivered by a Traveler, are collectively referred to as a “Package.” Travelers and Senders, individually or together are referred to as “Users “.
NFS is a platform that allows senders to conveniently and affordably ship packages by connecting a sender and a traveler. Travelers earn money by carrying packages from trusted senders to recipients abroad.
User: A person who uses the App by signing up as either a Sender or Traveler.
Traveler: Traveler selects from Sender’s post
A Traveler is a person travelling from the location of the package and heading to final destination of the package, and is willing to book the item for delivery. A Sender will have to accept the offer to initiate the process.
Sender: Sender creates a package and post the items.
The Sender describes the item, weight, size, final country of destination and uploads a picture of the items. Items including books, electronics, cloths, etc. can be posted online or using a mobile phone. Illegal items are not allowed.
Applications: An application is a software program that's designed to perform a specific function directly for the user or, in some cases, for another application program.
PSP: Payment System Provider: Payment service providers connect merchants to the electronic financial system so they can accept credit and debit card payments. Payment service providers bring all financial parties together to deliver a seamless experience for merchants and their customers by processing
Hazardous Material: Link
A hazardous material is any item or agent (biological, chemical, radiological, and/or physical), which has the potential to cause harm to humans, animals, or the environment, either by itself or through interaction with other factors. Hazardous materials professionals are responsible for and properly qualified to manage such materials. This includes managing and/or advising other managers on hazardous materials at any point in their life-cycle, from process planning and development of new products; through manufacture, distribution and use; and to disposal, cleanup and remediation.
Hazardous materials are defined and regulated in the United States primarily by laws and regulations administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), and the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). Each has its own definition of a "hazardous material."
Prohibited/Restricted/Special Items: (Please Check your Airline for Prohibited/Restricted/Special Items Updates)
NextFlightShipping does not conduct screening or background checks on any Sender or Traveler for the purposes of allowing them to use our Applications or Services.
Notwithstanding the above, NextFlightShipping reserves the right to begin conducting such checks and screening of all Users at any time as it deems appropriate in its sole discretion, including but not limited to verification of identities, criminal and other background checks (at the Country, State and local level as we deem necessary or appropriate), and to require any User to submit to such checks and screening should such User wish to continue use of NextFlightShipping Services of Applications.

Restrictions on Package Contents
NextFlightShipping Prohibited Items
All Senders are prohibited from including in any Package, and all Travelers are prohibited from knowingly accepting, picking-up, carrying or delivering any Package containing the following items:
Cigarettes or any tobacco product, wine, beer or any other alcoholic beverages or any other product regulated and controlled by the United States Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB);
Firearms or weapons of any kind, any firearm or weapon parts, or ammunition in any amount (see below) *
Replica or inert explosives or weapons that bear an appearance to actual explosives or weapons;
Any “Hazardous Material” (see below) ** not including those Hazardous Materials in small or excepted quantities as defined in the United States Code of Federal Regulations.;
Any Hazardous Waste, defined as a solid waste that meets any of the criteria of the hazardous waste as described in 40 C.F.R. § 261.3 (whether or not in small or excepted quantities);
Any substance or item prohibited by any applicable State, Federal, or International regulation, statute, or law, including, without limitation, recreational drugs and other contraband;
Any controlled substance, as that term is defined by 21 U.S.C. § 802(16), including marijuana intended for medicinal use;
Coins, currency, postage stamps, negotiable instruments, money orders;
Unset precious stones, industrial diamonds, any article that contains more than fifty percent by weight of gold or platinum or any combination thereof in raw form, including, but not limited to, bullion, bars, or scraps of these metals; or

** Hazardous Materials
All Users must be aware that these T&C, and both the NextFlightShipping Traveler’s Agreement and the NextFlightShipping Sender’s Agreement forbid the transportation of hazardous materials (“HAZMAT”). HAZMAT may include common household items such as alcohol, or seemingly benign items like dry ice (solid carbon dioxide or COâ‚‚). All Users are encouraged to see complete listings or tables of HAZMATs by clicking on the following links:
Stiff civil penalties (fines) of up to $175,000.00 apply to people who offer for shipment, cause to be shipped or transport HAZMAT. The penalties apply whether the transportation is by vehicle, vessel, aircraft or rail. Please see specific information on civil penalties at:
Among the reasons for these regulations are the protection, safety and security of vehicles, vessels, aircraft and railways. Because HAZMAT is dangerous, it must be properly packaged, labeled, marked, identified and certified; it must include in the shipping papers emergency response information to assist crash, fire and rescue personnel in the event of an accident or incident; there must be provided an emergency contact telephone number in the shipping papers that must satisfy legal requirements; and there are a myriad of other things people offering for transport or transporting HAZMAT must satisfy to avoid paying massive fines. Please see:
NEXTFLIGHTSHIPPING HAS NO LIABILITY OR RESPONSIBILITY TO EITHER TRAVELERS OR SENDERS FOR THE INCLUSION OF ANY PROHIBITED ITEMS IN ANY PACKAGE OR THE TRANSPORT OF ANY PROHIBITED ITEMS IN ANY PACKAGE
It is every Traveler and Sender’s duty and obligation to know and comply with all applicable laws, whether State, Federal, or International, relating to the pick-up and delivery of any Package and all items contained in a Package, including without limitation those laws prohibiting the transportation or shipment of certain items (including Hazardous Materials and contraband), restricting the amounts of certain items that can be shipped, and age restrictions. NextFlightShipping has no liability or responsibility if a Traveler or Sender fails to comply with these T&C or all applicable laws with respect to the inclusion or acceptance of any items contained in a Package or during the performance of the Package.
Any Traveler discovering a NextFlightShipping Prohibited Item in a Package shall immediately notify NextFlightShipping at support@NextFlightShipping.com for further direction. NextFlightShipping is not responsible for the contents or loss of any NextFlightShipping Prohibited Item. NextFlightShipping, LLC reserves the right to dispose of any NextFlightShipping Prohibited Item in its sole discretion and reserves all rights to instruct its Travelers on how to dispose of any NextFlightShipping Prohibited Item, including delivery to the proper authorities.
NextFlightShipping Special Items

Packaging and Open Box Policy
NextFlightShipping encourages the use of minimal packaging both to help our environment and so our Travelers know what they are taking along on their ride. When packaging is required or desired, NextFlightShipping supports and strongly encourages its Travelers and Senders to always use an Open Box Policy.
NextFlightShipping’s Open Box Policy means Senders should always leave packaging open so that a Traveler may inspect the contents before leaving with the Package. If a Sender doesn’t leave the packaging open, a Traveler always has the right to require a Sender to open packaging to inspect items before leaving with the Package.
DON’T CARRY A PACKAGED ITEM UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT IS INSIDE!
It is a Traveler’s responsibility to know the contents of all items in the Package being carried. NextFlightShipping isn’t there when you accept the Package and we can’t confirm that the items are the same as pictured in our App – only you can. All of our Travelers are strongly encouraged to visually inspect all items packaged in a Package before leaving. A Traveler is NEVER under an obligation to take or bring anything that hasn’t been inspected and can always cancel the Package without penalty if the Sender does not allow you to inspect or resists inspection.
No Traveler should ever feel obligated to carry any Package. It is a Traveler’s right to say no, even after inspecting the Package.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT NO MATTER WHAT TOTAL VALUE YOU DECLARE FOR YOUR PACKAGE OR ANY INDIVIDUAL ITEM(S) CONTAINED IN SUCH PACKAGE, NEXTFLIGHTSHIPPING IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE UNLESS YOU PURCHASE THE NEXTFLIGHTSHIPPING PROTECTION PLAN, SUBJECT TO THE TERMS OF THE NEXTFLIGHTSHIPPING PROTECTION PLAN.
Terms and Conditions to the NextFlightShipping Protection Plan
Filing a Claim
If you believe any item contained in your Package is lost or damaged, follow these steps to begin the claims process. It is important to note that only the Sender may file a claim; the recipient of the Package cannot file a claim. A recipient who believes an item contained in a Package has been lost or damaged should contact the Sender to begin the claims process.
In the case of a damaged item, follow the Damaged Package Claim Process at NextFlightShipping.com. In the case of damage, keep all of the packaging materials, as they may need to be examined as part of the claims process.
In the case of a lost item, follow the Lost Package Claim Process at NextFlightShipping.com.
Please note that, in the case of either Lost or Damaged Package Claims, Sender should keep receipts for all items in a Package.
NextFlightShipping may use a third-party provider to manage the claims process. In cases of damage to a NextFlightShipping Special Item, NextFlightShipping (or its provider) will analyze the integrity of packaging and associated materials and will determine adequate packaging in its sole discretion.

Cancelations and No-Shows
Cancelation by Senders
If a Sender needs or wants to cancel a Package, please cancel the request as soon as possible. This will notify the Traveler and free them up to accept other Packages from other Senders. To cancel a Package, tap Cancel on the Package Details screen within the NextFlightShipping Application.
What Happens When a Sender Cancels or is a No Show?
Every Sender will get one cancellation or no-show free of any charges or fees. After one cancellation or no show, NextFlightShipping, LLC. will charge a Sender 25% for each canceled Package and/or each no-show. A Package is deemed canceled if the Sender cancels the Package once a Traveler is already on his way to fulfill the Package (“Cancelation “). A Sender will be considered a no-show if the Sender drops off the Package at the designated pick-up or drop-off location (1) more than 15 minutes after the agreed pick-up/drop-off time without calling, messaging or otherwise contacting the Traveler through the Application, or (2) more than 30 minutes after the agreed pick-up/drop-off time, whether or not Sender has contacted the Traveler (“No-Show “). If either a Sender Cancelation or No-Show occurs, a 25% cancelation fee is automatically charged to the Sender’s account.
A Sender will not be charged a cancelation fee if they cancel a Package due to a Traveler’s No-Show, or Cancelation or if they cannot contact a Traveler during the performance of their Package.
Cancelation by Travelers
If a Traveler needs or wants to cancel a Package, please cancel the Package as soon as possible. This will notify the Sender and allow them to contact another Traveler to accept the Package. To cancel a Package, tap Cancel on the Package Details screen within the NextFlightShipping Application.
What Happens When A Traveler Cancels or is a No Show?
As with the Sender, a Package is deemed canceled if the Traveler cancels the Package once accepting the Package, provided that a Traveler may cancel a Package within 10 minutes of being selected for such Package without penalty (“Cancelation “). A Traveler will be considered a No-Show if he/she fails to arrive at the drop-off/pick-up location more than 15 minutes after the agreed pick-up time without calling, messaging or otherwise contacting the Sender through the Application, or (2) more than 30 minutes after the agreed drop-off/pick-up time, whether or not Traveler has contacted the Sender (“No-Show “).
A Traveler will not be charged a fee if they cancel a Package due to a Sender’s No-Show or if they cannot accept the Package due to restrictions in these T&C or other restrictions under applicable law.
