Not everyone is familiar with the term Hot Shot.
Dig a bit deeper and you'll find a reference to hot shot trucking as a type of trucking that carries relatively smaller, time sensitive loads to accessible locations. If you are to go by these definitions you'd have to say that ExpeditedFreight.com takes hot shot trucking to higher levels. In fact, you could say that we offer hot shot hot shot trucking services.

Together, they can then decide on a new route. If this will slow down delivery, the agent will notify the customer right away, so he can prepare the end user for the delay.
