Expedited Is Not What It Used To Be

Time was, expedited shipments covered up a lot of mistakes. Well, times change, and it might not be the emergency services business that you once thought. Expedited is now the fastest growing sector in the transportation environment.

While there’s an additional cost, many shippers are weighing these costs against the benefits of guaranteed delivery times and the increased cost of production time to compensate for shortages in inventory. Fact is, it may be an inexpensive insurance policy for high-demand customers. What’s the cost of losing business compared to that of the additional expedited shipment?
