As more and more businesses went digital to weather the boom in e-commerce, the more difficult it became for businesses to differentiate themselves from yet another online business.
One of the ways used to tip the competition is through expedited services.
By expediting products, businesses can gain reputation of being a reliable consumer partner. On the operation side, it has also the benefit of lowering inventory carrying costs and flexible production planning.
We use the expedited business model ourselves at Global Logistics Group – GLG as a freight forwarding in Memphis TN, so we know exactly how attractive the prospect of expediting your cargos and other deliverables is.
However, as any freight forwarding in Canada, or anywhere else, would tell you, it is not all about being right on schedule, you need to partner with a brokerage services provider who is committed to doing a good job.
To help you, here is a quick checklist of what you need to check for in your potential freight broker in Stafford, Virginia.
- Willingness to engage and discuss your questions
- A strong track record on expedited services
- Sufficient capacities and well-secured facilities
- Insured and vetted drivers
- Cargo insurance
- Dedicated customer service on call 24/7
