Our Project Expediting Services
We consider expediting a value-added service utilized to inspect manufacturers and assess manufacturing production plans and capacity during the whole production process. Our employees and experts offer manufacturers and suppliers a full range of expediting services to ensure that final delivery is made on time, including but not limited to:
- Verification against contractual conditions and actual project status.
- Monitoring production progress and identifying areas of concern.
- Progress reporting.
Our experts for expediting services support your project on site. With expediting visits at the manufacturer’s site, expediters review the exact current status of orders and future project planning. Field expediting, conducted on site as a third party inspection, supports clients by verifying scheduled progress and providing immediate feedback in identifying potential bottlenecks and threats which could eventually result in delays and hence incur financial loss.
Desk expediting is a vital part of expediting services. Also known as phone expediting, it is a valuable tool for monitoring order progress with a manufacturer, especially at specific milestones points in the schedule. Desk expediting is best used in combination with field expediting in order to assure project schedules and therefore ensure timely delivery.
