Expediting is a real-time task, which often demands pro-active responses to situations as they occur. In many cases it’s impossible to be on-site with every supplier around the world, so there is a need for trusted local expeditors with in-depth knowledge of procurement, production and delivery processes.
Large-scale projects and the supply of critical goods and equipment can involve complex international supply chains, with items procured from suppliers in multiple countries. Late delivery from any one supplier can have an impact on the whole chain, preventing projects from being completed on time and on budget. Expediting means taking any action necessary to ensure that deliveries are made on time and to specification.
