Expedited freight services gets your shipment to its destination faster than a standard service.

So how fast would an expedited freight service be? Here are some sample timelines if the shipment is departing from Montreal or Toronto to the major points across Canada: Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina and Vancouver.
