What You Need to Know About Expedited Freight

 

When shipping urgent freight, time is of the essence. When there’s a hiccup in your supply chain, what do you do? Expedited shipping gives your organization a competitive advantage by providing a quick resolution to problems that arise. Set your supply chain up for success by understanding the top three benefits of expedited shipping.

Invest Now, Save Later
While expedited shipping is usually more expensive than standard shipping, investing in your supply chain now will save you time, headaches and money in the long run. Ascent coordinates each shipment based on your budget and must-arrive-by-date. While the expedited shipping market is heavily driven by truck availability, most quotes can be sent to you within an hour of your request. Our team is ready to assist seven days a week, ensuring that a shipment will be coordinated to meet your needs.

Customer Satisfaction
By keeping your customers satisfied, you are protecting your organization’s reputation. Waiting on a shipment isn’t worth damaging your relationships with your customers. Having a relationship with a reliable shipping partner ensures that mishaps do not slow down your business. Ascent has the power to track all shipment milestones, calculate the most optimal route of transport and coordinate with the carrier from the point of origin to the destination.

Avoid Bigger Supply Chain Disruptions
While you may only be waiting for one single part to be delivered, every minute until it arrives will disrupt and delay your supply chain. If you’re in a pinch and need a shipment ASAP, expedited shipping will save the day. After shipment delivery, Ascent can provide an in-depth analysis of historical trends to improve your team’s productivity. We provide our clients with the ability to run actionable and detailed reports that contain real-time information specific to all your current and future operations.

Through successful intervention with the injured workers’ physicians, 1-888-OhioComp has achieved the highest rating by BWC for Exceptional Performance in Medication Management in 2017.

    Why 1-888-OhioComp is the medication management leader:

    • Manages all claims to eliminate or reduce excessive medications and hopefully reduce the incident of addiction.

    • Ensures injured workers are receiving only the medications necessary for the treatment and management of their allowed injuries and eliminates prescriptions for non-injury conditions.

    • Reduces claim expenses by eliminating unnecessary and excessive prescriptions and office visits.

    Prevention is the best strategy. Not being aggressive on medication management has a high cost for everyone.
