Time-Sensitive Shipments: When Every Minute Counts

In industries where time-sensitive shipments are common, a late delivery can have serious consequences for your business, customers, and, in some cases, the community at large.

Why Timely Delivery Matters

Perishable Goods

Time-sensitive shipments often involve perishable goods or high-value items that need to be transported quickly in optimal conditions to maintain their integrity and value. 

Certain medications, for example, must be kept at a specific temperature to remain effective and the slightest deviation could render them useless. This leads to wasted resources, financial loss and serious implications for patient care.

High-Value Items 

Non-perishable shipments with significant monetary value may also be time-sensitive for a multitude of reasons. Let’s say your company is exhibiting at a trade show and your booth includes intricate, expensive electronic components. Not only does it need to arrive on time, careful consideration needs to be given to how the equipment is transported. 

Beyond adequate packaging and careful handling, there is a need to plan for factors such as weather. Extreme temperatures can lead to damage in a multitude of ways. Too much heat causes components to melt, warp or malfunction while freezing temperatures cause materials to contract which can result in cracks and other physical imperfections.
