What is expedited shipping?
Expedited shipping is a special service when freight is delivered faster than regular transit times. The shipper gets a dedicated truck, and freight is delivered within a tight deadline.The principal difference between standard and expedited shipping is much shorter transit times and fewer touchpoints during transportation. Since expedited shipping is considered as an additional service, the price of expedited is higher than standard shipments. Expedited shipping is also safer than standard delivery due to fewer stops while in transit.
Why use expedited shipping?
Expedited shipping can be a great solution for shippers who often deal with unplanned, urgent shipments. For many businesses, last-minute shipments are the part of everyday routine, and expedited services can help companies handle the issue. Expedited works for unpredictable situations, like urgent medical supply or delivering equipment to a mining site. In the industries where time matters most, expedited shipping can become a lifesaver.
Expedited shipping allows you to meet strict and changing customer demands while keeping your business moving and lowering inventory costs. PLS Logistics Services can help you identify inefficiencies in your complex supply chain and match you with qualified carriers to ensure your freight is delivered on time, every time.
