Expedited Freight Shipping FAQs
When you need to move freight fast, standard shipping services may not get the job done. You need expedited freight shipping to provide prompt delivery. What is expedited freight shipping, and how does it work?
What Is Expedited Freight Shipping?
Expedited freight shipping is a method of delivering goods faster than normal shipping processes. When deliveries are urgent, expedited shipping ensures that transit time is held to the least amount of time possible, to arrive at the destination without delays.
In most cases, shipments are moved directly from the pickup point to the final destination.
Expedited delivery can encompass truckload volumes or smaller loads that utilize a Sprinter Cargo Van or Straight Truck.
How Fast Is Expedited Delivery?
If you consider an example of a standard shipping process of 3-5 days, expedited freight shipping could reduce the transit time by a day or two – sometimes more. In many cases, delivery time can be reduced from days to a matter of hours.
Planning in advance for expedited freight needs with your carrier is the best way to maximize the value of expedited shipping. This allows your freight carrier to schedule drivers and equipment so that they’re available to pick up shipments as soon as they’re ready to move.
How Do You Monitor Expedited Shipments?
Lubenow Companies Inc leverages technology to track expedited freight accurately, which keeps you informed of exactly where your shipments are along the way.
Dispatchers have up-to-the-minute information to pinpoint your expedited freight and ensure on-time delivery.
What Is the Cost of Expedited Freight Shipping?
The cost of expedited shipping will vary depending on the distance, equipment required, and the type of goods being transported. All types of shipping can be expedited, including:
- Full truckloads – even multiple trucks
- LTL shipments
- Palletized and non-palletized freight
Most importantly, when expedited delivery is required, the cost is justified. Getting freight to its destination on time, safely, and completely intact is the primary concern, especially when circumstances call for prompt delivery:
- Equipment or parts needed for a project that involves a work stoppage
- Emergency medical equipment needs
- Manufacturing deadlines that require inventory at the destination site
- Time-sensitive deliveries such as contractual obligations
The advantages of expedited freight shipping exceed the added cost. Expediting reduces handling time, eliminates extra movement of freight between transportation modes, and provides real-time information about your freight’s location.
Tracking and direct movement from pickup to the destination also increases the security of your shipment.
How Does Expedited Shipping Work?
Expedited freight shipping typically includes a single method of transportation from pickup to delivery. This reduces extra handling such as from truck to rail, then back to a delivery truck. Managing your freight in this way provides better tracking of your shipments and assures safe transit and delivery.

Are All Expedited Freight Carriers the Same?
Expedited shipping and delivery are specialized services that offer shippers many advantages to justify the cost:
- On-time pickup and reliable on-time delivery
- Variety of equipment to handle every job – semi-trucks, sprinters, cargo vans, and handling equipment
- Security that freight will be handled responsibly so that it arrives without damage or loss
- Tracking capability to monitor progress and assure delivery times
Not all expedited shipping carriers offer the same variety of equipment and services. Check with your proposed carrier in advance to ensure they can meet all your expedited freight shipping requirements.
