When you need high-value, temperature-sensitive equipment delivered fast
Say a hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, needs a medical imaging device delivered from a company in Pittsburgh by the end of the day. Because the machine is delicate and valuable, it should travel in temperature-controlled equipment with no other freight.
In this scenario, expedite would be the right choice. While other transportation options may be able to accommodate a 300-mile shipment in one day, the request for temperature-controlled equipment makes this suited for expedite service.
When you’re shipping high-value freight that requires close monitoring and quick delivery
If a shipment of high-value electronics needs to be delivered to a distribution center 700 miles away, expedite is the way to go. With the ability to monitor trucks through geo-fencing technology, and team drivers available to overnight shipments with speed and agility, expedite service provides everything you need to transport valuable freight.
When a shipment needs to move fast, but it won’t be ready for pickup during normal business hours
If an order needs to get on the road quickly but won’t finish production in time for normal pick-up hours, call the expedite team. We can pick up freight 24/7, helping you keep deliveries on schedule.
