Expedited Shipping Solutions for Business Shippers

Welcome to our library of comprehensive shipping resources focused on expedited parcel and freight shipping for small and mid-sized businesses.

So, What Is Expedited Shipping, Anyway?

Your business moves fast — and you need shipping services to match that pace. When you have commitments to keep, expedited shipping can be just the ticket. Whether it's highly competitive products, perishable goods and temperature-sensitive shipments, urgent inventory needs, or that timely document your business partner can't wait another day for — use expedited shipping (by ground or air) for delivery overnight or in one, two or three business days.

Our Expedited Shipping Hub is your business's gateway to fast shipping. Check out each section below, where you'll find links to articles providing explanations, expert insights and advice. You'll learn what expedited shipping has to offer, the value it can bring to your business, and what you can do to help keep your shipments in the fast lane. Plus, we'll offer you pointers other third-party logistics providers keep under wraps.

Speedy delivery for urgent parcel shipments

We get it. Sometimes your parcel shipments are so urgent they needed to arrive yesterday. While we can't turn back time, you can get the next-best thing: UPS® expedited parcel shipping. And don't rule out ground shipping. In some areas, UPS® Ground service can arrive just as fast as expedited shipping.

Use these resources to find the best parcel shipping service to fit your budget. Plus, get tips on how to make UPS pickup options work in your favor.

Get it there on time with expedited freight shipping

Need fast delivery for your larger freight shipments? That's right up our alley! We'll connect you with carriers that offer fast truckload (FTL) freight shipping from overnight delivery to delivery in just a few days. And if you think speedy shipping it outside the boundaries of less-thantruckload (LTL) freight, think again. A partial load delivery could be just the service to handle your LTL freight.

Ensure your expedited shipments are set up for fast delivery

You've heard the saying, "It takes two to tango." You'll find it's even true in shipping. No matter if you need standard vs. expedited delivery, both you and the carrier are responsible for getting shipments delivered on time. Chances are your shipments will get delayed if the bill of lading is inaccurate or your goods aren't properly packaged or your operations need fine-tuning. (You get the picture.)

Here's some insight on what to do on your end to help get your parcel and freight shipments delivered super-speedy fast:
