Expedited & Time-Critical Freight
LTL Freight Shipping
Global Transport partners with many carriers who specialize in expedited and time-critical freight shipping. Each of these options is available for both Less Than Truckload (LTL) and Full Truckload shipments.
What’s the difference between expedited and time-critical?
Expedited shipping speeds up the time it takes for your product to arrive at its destination. If the standard transit time from A to B is 2 days, an expedited option may drop this down to 1 day. Time-critical shipping is for strategic deliveries that must arrive on a particular day. Unless a time-critical service is offered, freight transit times are usually estimates. This service can be useful to guarantee that your product will arrive on-time, and takes the guesswork out of coordinating your deliveries!
How does it work?
If you have a shipment that needs to arrive on a particular day or needs expedited service, we use our extensive network of LTL and Truckload carriers to find the best fit for you. We are often able to get creative and find unique solutions that are outside of what would be considered “standard” services. This may include using multiple equipment types, from sprinter vans and hot shot carriers to straight trucks or even air freight. We may include GPS Tracking on your shipment to increase transparency, or add a “Guaranteed Service” with the carrier to incentivize them to prioritize your freight. We may use “Rescue” or “Final Mile” options, or take advantage of cross-docking or short-term warehouse options. We also have internal processes for marking your shipments “hot” so they get priority tracking and extra attention from your dedicated team of Global Transport! Each time-critical and expedited shipment looks different depending on your needs, the type of freight, and the options available. Our team works hard every day to open up as many options as we can so that you get the highest quality freight experience possible.
