What does a specialty paint company in Detroit, faced with getting a pallet-load of wood stain to his furniture factory customer in North Carolina, holding up production until it arrives, have in common with a telecom company logistics manager in Northern California who has to get several large spools of coaxial cable to installers waiting in desperation in Detroit?
In other words they need ExpeditedFreight.com. All it takes is a phone call to set things into motion, and within hours one of Expedited Freight's network of drivers schooled in the ways of urgent shipping will be arriving at their loading docks to start the journey.
In the case of the Pacific Coast telecom shipment, the vehicle might be a sprinter van, or it might be a straight truck — whichever the customer service agent who took the call deems to be more cost-efficient for the customer.
No matter which, the vehicle will be dedicated solely to the spools of cable for the entire next day freight trip. In cases like this, where an overnight drive is called for, two drivers may be dispatched, so they can spell each other eliminating nap stops. Since the van will not be making any stops to pick up or discharge other shipments, the installers will have their cable the next day. Traveling nonstop solo also minimizes the possibility of damage occurring along the way.
The cross-country priority freight paint shipment will involve several modes of transportation. First it will be picked up in a dedicated sprinter van and driven nonstop to the closest airport.
Once it arrives, it will be transferred to the next available air freight flight to the airport nearest to its North Carolina destination. In most cases the plane will be a consolidated flight on which, moment by another dedicated vehicle and delivered to its anxious recipient.
When you ship with ExpeditedFreight.com, you can be certain, everyone involved along the way will be dedicated to helping you meet your urgent deadline, from the dedicated agent who takes your call to the driver who hands it over to the customer awaiting it with open arms.
