Frequently Asked Questions
What is expedited freight shipping?

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.

What kind of goods are typically expedited?

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.
