With more than 90 years of combined experience in expedited shipments, the Expedited Services department of leading logistics company GlobalTranz is committed to ensuring the safe and timely delivery of expedited freight. For clients who are new to the world of expedited shipping, the following tips can help GlobalTranz serve your time-sensitive shipping needs even better.

Provide key data: Complete and accurate information is key to streamlining the shipping process. Shipment details should be as detailed as possible to ensure time-sensitive deliveries get where they need to go.

Consider value rather than just cost: Price is certainly a factor when choosing an expedited shipping option, but quality and service are equally important to keep in mind. Depending on the type of shipment, its destination, and the timeframe for shipping, the overall value of expedited services is usually much greater than the cost alone.

Ensure proper packaging: Correct packaging helps prevent expedited shipments from being held up or delayed in transit. Packing precautions include making sure pallets are in good condition, freight is stacked on pallets in a stable interlock pattern, and all freight is clearly and accurately labeled.
