    When Expedited Shipments Add Up to Savings

    Expedited shipments are often perceived as expensive and used as a last resort. But, done correctly, these types of shipments can bring cost-effective and sustainable changes to an organization. Understanding the outcome needed instead of focusing on the mode of transportation is important. Shippers need solutions that cross all modes and that fill all the gaps within their supply chains. This session will explore what expedited services are, how and why they should be included in transportation strategies, and ways to use expedited services in a sustainable manner.
