Common Questions about Expediting Freight

How Fast is Expedite Shipping?

By definition, expedite means making a process happen faster than normal. But what does “faster than normal” mean in transportation? For ArcBest customers, it means we’ll deliver shipments as fast as we can drive them — even if that’s by using two drivers who trade off so the freight never stops moving.

Why Would I Need Expedite?

Expedite is standard in industries like automotive, manufacturing and life sciences, where time-sensitive shipments are part of the normal course of business. But it’s also a valuable solution for companies of all sizes, in all industries that are in mission-critical situations. If you’re searching for a way to ship freight outside of standard business hours or get it to its destination as fast as possible, expedite is the answer.

Is it Just for Moving Freight Quickly?

Despite the name, expedite isn’t just about speed. It’s also about precision and visibility. By ensuring your customers get their orders exactly when expected, and sharing proactive tracking notifications to give them peace of mind, you can protect the customer experience and maintain your business’s reputation.
