FCL Expedite Shipping: Raising Our Partners’ Supply Chain Potential

Jun 21, 2023

Co-CEOs Chris and Kyle Bland Examine the Rising Necessity of Reliable Expedite Shipping Services

It’s difficult to imagine any modern business reaching its full potential without reliable expedited shipping.

We can still recall a time when buying a used car 1,500 miles from your home and finding it delivered safely to your driveway before the weekend was unthinkable — when having a made-to-measure suit hand-sewn halfway across the world mere weeks before your special occasion might’ve been considered an impossible business model.

Today these services aren’t just considered commonplace, but necessary for a business to offer any real staying power in the digital age. Consumers and businesses alike have spent the past two decades growing accustomed to ordering products online with ease, and receiving their orders in record time thanks to massive leaps forward in global supply chain connectivity, technology and collaboration — leaps First Call itself has made in just a few short years.

While steadily building our reputation as a trusted expedite freight partner, we’ve witnessed firsthand the value of approaching complicated shipping challenges with cool heads and creative solutions.

These solutions include in-house TMS tech allowing us to create route and pairing efficiencies to rival standard LTL models, and the ability to quickly consolidate shipments that might normally be deemed “volume LTL” to help our partners avoid sudden markups or accessorial charges.

So whether you’re looking to keep factory production online, fast-track raw material delivery or merely simplify your day-to-day logistics management, First Call’s expedited shipping services will be there for you offering the same value we promise every customer we’ve partnered with over the years:
