It's all about velocity. In a continuing effort to provide best-in-class service to shippers, FedEx Freight has cut transit times in several U.S. markets, in every case trimming at least one full day from the previous standard.
Reducing the time it takes to move freight shipments helps businesses run efficient manufacturing operations, get products to market faster and re-stock inventories with less notice. "Reducing the transit time in a lane by even one day can have significant benefits to shippers who keep lean inventories," says Dennie C. Carey, senior vice president of marketing for FedEx Freight. "Our transit time improvements support our customers who use just-in-time and regional distribution models."
With the new standards in place, nearly 90 percent of all shipments transported by FedEx Freight are delivered on the next day or second day.
Examples of the improved transit times include lanes between Detroit and parts of Kentucky (and eastern Tennessee),where transit times have been cut from second business day to next business day.
