When shipments are expedited, it means that they arrive faster than usual shipments. This is sometimes accomplished with air delivery, or trucks that rarely stop. In some cases, trucking teams of two drivers take turns so one can sleep while the other drives, leading to fewer breaks required by the electronic log mandate.
While some situations allow for free faster shipping, the cost of this type of shipping is usually an added expense. However, when you need something to get there faster, most businesses find it is more than worth it to have professionals hauling your freight with speed and care. However, we offer cost-effective and efficient options for faster shipping when needed.
How long does this type of shipping take? It varies depending on how far it is going and other conditions of the shipment. Depending on the shipping method and distance, some shipments can arrive in as little as 1-2 days. Others may take longer. The time depends on the need of the customer and the availability of an expedited carrier.
One of the most important aspects of fast shipping is tracking. For each expedited shipment we provide a dedicated coordinator who is available during and after normal business hours. We also provide real-time updates, so you always know where your shipment is and the estimated time of arrival.
