The benefits of consolidating logistics services can save your company thousands monthly.

Why pay for multiple vendors providing multiple services when you can keep it all to one vendor under one roof. I think a lot of CEO’s , CFO’s and Logistics Coordinators ask this question often. Dealing with the hassle of multiple vendors means there is just more potential points of failure period. This means detailed coordination between vendors and the clients , multiple invoices to deal with and more possible links in the chain that can cause both security and operational issues. We all know the horror stories of missed deliveries, things getting lost in transit, and integral people not being where they should be. Think about if one company could handle it all from transportation to warehousing to a detailed customized fulfillment plan and expedited last mile delivery. We aren’t just a courier service but rather a specialty logistics company that specializes in a multitude of quality services.  To learn more about our services click here

As the number of firms involved in your supply chain increases, so does the amount of risk. When a business relies on too many other firms to perform crucial parts of their business, there is less transparency and more room for error.

By consolidating your supply chain, you’re able to focus on your core competencies, which will allow you to increase your competitive advantage over the competition.  When it comes to running your business, the best way to improve is to keep your focus on what you’re good at, and find the right people you can trust with the other parts. When you have a trusted courier and logistics service, like American Expediting, handling expedited deliveries, you’re able to focus on the parts of your business that you know best.

American Expediting is Providing Quality Specialty Logistics for Championship Sports Teams.

 

 

As a consumer, I’ve always been amazed to see t-shirts in my local stores within hours of my favorite teams winning championships.  T-Shirts and embroidered hats are positioned close to the store cash registers, with lines of buyers waiting to make their purchases.  As if the team’s victory wasn’t magical enough, the production, shipping, and store placement surely adds to the excitement of happy fans.

 

For the past six years, American Expediting has been a key partner in making this magic.  We’ve handled retail deliveries throughout the country for most of the major sport leagues, and for dozens of collegiate and franchised teams including; Pittsburgh Penguins, Boston Bruins, Anaheim Ducks, and Chicago Blackhawks from the NHL.  Miami Heat and Golden State Warriors from the NBA, The Ohio State University, Kentucky Wildcats, UNC, and Duke’s college basketball and football programs.

 

Building up this portfolio of deliveries comes only after intensive logistical planning, operational routing, and chaotic evenings.  The process begins when the printers receive their projected store orders for immediate delivery.  A retail store may order thousands of units for their top stores, with only a small amount delivering in a rush.  The remaining arrive more economically within 2 to 3 days.  In the case of this past week’s victory for the Pittsburgh Penguins, we received a bulk spreadsheet from one client with over 400 lines of orders.  The raw data involved is an intensive puzzle. The list is made up of four printers spread out anywhere from 30 to 150 miles from Pittsburgh, two major retailers, over 60,000 t-shirts and 2,500 cartons. We also take into account the store receiving hours, and estimated availability that starts at 2:30am and runs throughout the day.  We quickly unscramble the data to determine the vehicle types that are needed, route the deliveries, estimate delivery times, and charges for each route.

 

This week our real magician was Brandon Yagelski out of our Pittsburgh location.  Brandon worked with our logistics planners and coordinated with dozens of drivers to be prepared to activate for remote printer pick-ups immediately after the game.  He got on the phone and confirmed each drivers availability, and stayed in contact with them until each box was delivered and signed for by store personnel.  While the process may appear magical to us as consumers, the process and success requires hard work, determination, and the luck of the puck going into the goal.

 

Great job to everyone involved!!

Deliveries to hospitals and clinics from blood banks is the most essential and on demand service that is utilized by our customers. The following is a story that happens all the time. This is why we do what we do.

“October 17, 2013 did not go as anyone had pictured it. It started as a day filled with anticipation and excitement as I was admitted to the labor and delivery floor to have our first child – a baby girl we named Georgia. It was the day after my due date, so she was actually quite punctual. After a pretty easy labor and a smooth delivery of our 8 pound, 8 ounce healthy baby girl, I began feeling ill. The medical staff equated it with a drop in my blood pressure and tilted my bed back to make me feel better, which worked initially. I had lost more blood than normal during the delivery, and it still seemed like there was something wrong.  My doctor told me that I was continuing to bleed and she couldn’t see where it was coming from, so we needed to go to the operating room (OR) to get a better look.

I ended up developing a very rare condition called disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) that kept my blood from clotting normally. DIC has a high mortality rate and is difficult to control. I lost over three liters of my own blood and was in the OR for more than 3 intense hours while numerous physicians, CRNAs, nurses and technicians worked to stop my bleeding.  I received 12 units of blood, 6 units of fresh frozen plasma, and 2 units of platelets before I finally became stable and the bleeding was controlled. What had started as a happy, exciting day had ended in a roller coaster of emotions as my family waited to hear good news about my condition. The next morning I woke up intubated in the critical care unit where I stayed for two days before being able to move back to the labor and delivery floor with my husband and new baby girl. We stayed a total of 5 days in the hospital before we finally brought our little girl home with grateful hearts for the miracle that took place in our lives.

A few weeks after going home from the hospital I had the opportunity, along with my husband Todd and our daughter, to meet some employees from Arkansas Blood Institute. I was able to thank them and to let them see, first hand, the benefits and changed lives that resulted from the work that they do every day. It was a humbling experience to say the least.

Unfortunately, I have to say that I’ve never donated blood in the past; however, Arkansas Blood Institute has gained a lifelong blood donor after my experience. If it wasn’t for blood, plasma and platelet donors, the skilled medical staff wouldn’t have had the resources they needed to save my life and my Georgia would’ve grown up without her mother. I cannot express the extent to which blood donors have affected our family’s life. They kept our world from falling apart that day. Without them, I wouldn’t be enjoying the blessing of becoming a mother to a healthy, happy little girl.  Donating blood is such an easy way that each one of us can give back and change the lives of not only recipients but their loved ones as well. My daughter gets to know her mommy in part because a dozen people decided to donate blood.”

There are stories like this coming in from all over the country because of the work of hospital staff and the dedicated courier services tasked with stat transportation. We will continue to provide this valuable service and take pride in what we do.

Below is an actual customer testimonial:

“In this business, we get plenty of ‘bad news calls’ so I wanted to share a very positive experience I had yesterday and tell you what a good job your driver, Bill P…did for us yesterday. We have some very time-critical shipments going to Japan to support the nuclear power plant debacle and this shipment was one of them…very high visibility with lots of executive stress from the client. Bill made great time, kept us updated throughout the drive and had all his documents in order. I met Bill at UA Cargo to assist in the tendering process and he was very helpful and professional.

Please extend my appreciation for a job well done to Bill and the American Expediting crew! Many thanks!”
