We’ll go over the steps for expediting international air freight so that you know exactly what to expect for your shipments.

Schedule the Service

The first step for expediting your freight is to schedule the service with a 3PL, such as Diversified Transportation Services. Contact your 3PL and let them know you need to expedite your freight. When you enlist our trustworthy services, we ensure that you receive the best prices and service to successfully expedite your cargo.

Pick Up and Transportation

The next step for expediting international air freight is for a carrier to pick up your freight and load it onto the next flight out to the destination. Since you want to expedite your shipment, we will find the most direct path for your freight to ensure that your freight arrives as quickly as possible.


After the plane carrying your cargo reaches its destination, the freight carriers unload your shipments and prepare them for delivery. Since you paid for expedited shipping, your shipments should not sit in storage or stay still for long. The carrier should then deliver the freight as quickly as possible from the airport to its destination.
