Posted by Ascent Global Logistics on Nov 18, 2019 6:45:00 PM

When shipping urgent freight, time is of the essence. When there's a hiccup in your supply chain, what do you do? Expedited shipping gives your organization a competitive advantage by providing a quick resolution to problems that arise. Set your supply chain up for success by understanding the top three benefits of expedited shipping.

Invest Now, Save Later

While expedited shipping is usually more expensive than standard shipping, investing in your supply chain now will save you time, headaches and money in the long run. Ascent coordinates each shipment based on your budget and must-arrive-by-date. While the expedited shipping market is heavily driven by truck availability, most quotes can be sent to you within an hour of your request. Our team is ready to assist you seven days a week, ensuring that a shipment will be coordinated to meet your needs.

Customer Satisfaction

By keeping your customers satisfied, you are protecting your organization's reputation. Waiting on a shipment isn't worth damaging your relationships with your customers. Having a relationship with a reliable shipping partner ensures that mishaps do not slow down your business. Ascent has the power to track all shipment milestones, calculate the most optimal route of transport and coordinate with the carrier from the point of origin to the destination.

Avoid Bigger Supply Chain Disruptions

While you may only be waiting for one single part to be delivered, every minute until it arrives will disrupt and delay your supply chain. If you're in a pinch and need a shipment ASAP, expedited shipping will save the day. After shipment delivery, Ascent can provide an in-depth analysis of historical trends to improve your team's productivity. We provide our clients with the ability to run actionable and detailed reports that contain real-time information specific to all your current and future operations.
