What is expedited freight shipping?
To expedite a shipment is to get it somewhere faster; freight shipments exceed 150 pounds in weight and measure four feet or more in physical dimension. For more details, view our blog on the expedited freight shipping model.
How quickly can expedited freight move from place to place?
In National Logistic Network's U.S.-Canadian service area, expedited freight shipments typically arrive at their destinations within 1-3 days. However, same-day arrangements can be made for the most time-critical deliveries. Get in touch with one of our service representatives and we will do everything in our power to fulfill your needs.
What kind of goods are typically expedited?
The medical, pharmaceutical, and manufacturing industries most commonly expedite freight, as critical processes or even lives are at stake in their practices. However, virtually anything can be shipped via expedited freight within legal and ethical limits. If you have any questions about the eligibility of your deliverables, do not hesitate to contact us.
Is expedited freight shipping expensive?
Expedited freight shipping is a premium service, and there is a cost attached to that. Also consider that delays can be costlier in certain circumstances — they may even jeopardize a company's reputation or business altogether. The base cost of shipping freight itself is regulated by the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA), who sets pricing standards based on a good's stowability, liability, density, and ease of handling.
