In today’s world, it’s rare to find a company able to offer a truly novel product and expedited freight is increasingly an avenue for helping yours stand out.
While you may have put quite a bit of development time into getting your first product ready to roll off the line, as soon as that product is out in the world it’s liable to be copied and imitated from all sorts of players in the marketplace. Trademarks and copywrites can go a long way in staking a claim to your corner of the market, but they can only do so much. One way businesses today try to make themselves stand out is by being able to offer expedited freight.
Expedited freight for impatient consumers
Modern consumers have the entire information superhighway at their fingertips at all times. The ability to find any kind of product to fit their needs has become completely baked into the market from top to bottom. It’s increasingly difficult to make your product stand out on price and quality alone.
One thing we know about customers, though, is that their needs to move quickly matches exactly with the needs of your business. Customers want to have their orders filled yesterday, whether they’re buying a box of matches or a new space station module. In a world where several different suppliers might be able to fill the same order, the one who can make it to the customer the fastest will often stand out as the winner.
Finding expedited freight that works for you
Setting up a system that adequately incorporates expedited freight options is no easy task. There are several elements you need to look for in order to make sure you’re working this problem in the best possible way.
First and foremost, an expedited freight system will only ever work if you find a shipping partner who can listen to your needs and work with you to provide the right resources at the right time. Making expedited freight work well is all about building that key relationship.
Second, when looking for a good shipping partner it’s important to find one with an established logistics chain that you know can serve your needs. A good shipping partner will have a wealth of experience moving goods across the country. This track record means they can give you accurate delivery estimates and that they know how to communicate during the whole process.
Passing this information to your customers will make the shipping process transparent and positive for them.
