Basically, Expedited means that you want to speed up the process of your shipment. By expediting a shipment, your freight will be delivered sooner than if it had shipped via the standard method of transport.
Shipments are expedited when the delivery of freight is time critical, such as the need to meet a deadline, fill an emergency request, or prevent a costly out-of-stock situation.
Filling Your Need for Speed
As you would expect, expedited shipments will cost somewhat more than non-expedited shipments. This is because they require speedier processing and accelerated transportation methods. For example, using air transportation to supplement ground travel shortens the transit time considerably. In fact, most overnight and second-day deliveries rely on air travel. If air service is not an option, an exclusive use vehicle (a truck that travels directly from origin to destination) is a popular method for moving rush shipments by ground.
