All In Good Time: The Value of Time Sensitive Logistics


Time is money, which is why time sensitive logistics are incredibly valuable for many businesses.

It used to be that expedited transportation was considered a luxury, high-cost service reserved only for the most urgent shipments. But that has changed in today’s fast-paced global economy. Companies of all sizes utilize time-critical transportation even for ongoing, continuous and planned shipments. While expedited services are still essential for unplanned rescues, many businesses have developed smart management strategies that make regular use of these services.

Speed, Short-Term Demand

Assured shipping is incredibly valuable for companies who depend on speed, or that need tight control over the products in transit. When you’re dealing with high value goods, there’s no sense in risking a looser supply chain. Manufacturers also choose expedited services for just-in-time assembly lines, lean inventory strategies, and keeping up with a frequent need for replacement parts. Speed is vital for companies with seasonal or cyclical demand. In these instances, planning with time sensitive logistics in mind is incredibly valuable.
