The New Normal: Mission Critical Logistics

Mission Critical Logistics

Mission critical logistics has a greater importance in business now than ever before.

In the past, businesses considered expedited shipping as the last resort, reserved only for the most urgent shipments. The perception of this method as a high-cost, luxury service still persists in some circles. But the breakneck pace of the modern global economy has rendered this perception inaccurate. Mission critical logistics is the new normal in business today – small and large businesses rely on it for regular shipments to distributors and warehouses and develop strategies that utilize it fully. Recognizing and valuing the importance of mission critical logistics can make all the difference for your business.

Air and Ground Options

When you think of mission critical logistics, you might be thinking of air freight shipping. It is true that, more often than not, expedited air shipping will take the least amount of time in getting to its intended destination. And for emergency situations, a Next Flight Out (NFO) will be the only option available. However, your situation may be more flexible and ground shipping may make more sense. Express driving, two driver teams, and same-day direct drive services are all available to get your time critical shipment to its destination when it needs to arrive.
