What is expedited freight?
The basic goal of expedited trucking is to cut out all wasted time and get goods where they need to go on a time-sensitive delivery basis. There are several methods used to accomplish this. For one, trucks shipping expedited freight rarely stop along the way. The precious cargo being delivered is the key of the route. Expedited freight services streamline the shipping process to get goods delivered in the timeliest manner possible.

Anyone who needs a package delivered by a certain time can employ the use of expedited freight. Shipments can be both large and small, from a few letters to a few pallets to a full truckload. Some common users of expedited freight are: Medical facilities in need of emergency supplies; Factories in need of timely inventory replenishment or to meet a manufacturing schedule; and Operators of oil drilling or mining facilities who need vital parts to keep their operation going when important machinery breaks down. These are prime examples, but anyone can use expedited freight services when they have a shipment needing extremely urgent delivery.
How do logistics plan into expedited freight?
As anyone who ships goods knows, logistics play a key role in an efficient, effective shipping process. With expedited freight services, the person shipping the goods can track their shipment at any time. This gives the shipper peace of mind by knowing his urgent shipment is “on track”. In addition, a good expedited freight company will assist in the logistics of shipping from start to finish, helping the shipper develop a headache-free plan to get his goods where they need to go.
What distances does expedited freight shipping cover?
There is no limit on the distance that an expedited shipment can cover. Whether the shipper needs goods shipped across town or across the country, an expedited freight company can plan and execute that delivery in a timely manner. This is another area in which logistics come into play. When coordinating a long-distance delivery, there are many factors involved which a reputable expedited freight company will effectively manage and streamline.
