Expediting can be performed in two types of services, On Desk & On-Field Expediting.


Production control, the expeditor inspects the factory whether the production is up to the standards of the country the goods are destined for. This is especially necessary for engineering equipment.

The expeditor controls as well whether the regular audits for ISO9001, etc…, have been made.

The components are tested whether they function as required and whether they are made to the measurements and standards of the customer. A part of this quality control can be the testing for compliance with standards of the destination country, (e.g. ASME).

This is the lowest and most used level of expediting, as the goods are only counted and the packing is controlled whether it will withstand the adversities of transport (pre-shipment inspection).

At a large-scale project, not only goods are controlled. The expediter also keeps an eye on the deadlines and milestones of the project and whether the supplier will be on time. This way he or she monitors the crucial procurement parts of the project.
