Arizona Access: An Expedited Freight Company Yuma With A Passion For Punctuality
Known to many as the Winter Lettuce Capital of the World, Yuma, Arizona is one of the most important providers of agricultural products in the modern United States. This city of 90,000 is located just north of the border with Mexico, allowing it to play a major role in international trade. This position, its agricultural success, and the many manufacturers and other advanced firms that set up shop here make Yuma a major production and business center not just for Arizona, but for all of the Southwest.
Expedited Freight Yuma, Arizona
AirFreight.com has delivered for years in Yuma, as well as in neighboring cities and towns like Calexico, Parker, Blythe, Imperial, El Centro, and Lake Havasu. During this time, we’ve gotten a keen sense of all the shipping problems that businesses in the area have to deal with.
Delivery routes can often be unpredictable, with even the most careful carriers falling behind schedule. Heavy traffic can block access to key cities; harsh weather can force delivery vehicles to go slow or even stop on the side of the road; and road quality issues can create serious risks, or even lead to road closures at the worst possible times. All these problems are especially serious for food producers and manufacturers, who work on strict schedules and can’t accommodate delays. The AirFreight.com team helps you avoid these delays and keep your business on schedule.

Our comprehensive shipping strategy involves:
Leveraging our Network
Over the years, we’ve carefully assembled a network of trucks, vans, and trailers that extends all over North America. From the Yucatan Peninsula to Alaska to Nova Scotia to Florida, we have vehicles stationed in all major cities, and keep those vehicles ready to go whenever we need them. This means that we’re unlikely to be more than two hours away from your starting point, no matter how remote or distant that starting point is. Our drivers are always ready to start up a truck and head for that starting point, where they’ll load up your goods and get on the road to Tucson straightaway. Thus, you don’t have to worry about a lag between when you place the order and when your goods get on the road.
Plotting our Routes
While we keep lag time to a minimum, we also make sure that we have a plan for every delivery we provide. The last thing you want is for your goods to be caught in traffic or blocked by a storm, so we consider the risk of each when choosing a route. We also account for road quality and road closures, as well as simple physical distance. In this way, we can select routes that are not only quick, but consistent. When we tell you when to expect a delivery, you can be confident that the delivery will arrive at that time or earlier. You’ll thus have the stability you need to make plans for your business.
Tracking our Trucks
o strengthen that stability, we incorporate advanced monitoring systems into our trucks. These systems tell us the location of our vehicles at all times, and let us look ahead to see if there are any dangers or causes of delay on the road. Should we see such a problem, we’ll find an alternative route immediately and let the driver know how to get onto it before they run into trouble. This process insulates us against the unforeseen delays of shipping, so that we’re able to remain on schedule even in the face of the unknown.
Dedicating our Deliveries
Our trucks don’t serve multiple customers at once. Instead, we dedicate them to one order at a time, and make sure the drivers are wholly focused on fulfilling that order. This means that we can select the most direct route from your starting point to your destination, and don’t have to work anyone else’s destination into the schedule.
Tailoring our Trucks
We have a vast array of trucks in various payload sizes. When you tell us the volume of goods you need delivered, we’ll select a truck that closely matches that volume, so you don’t have to pay for space you don’t use.
Teaming Up our Drivers
To increase speed without sacrificing safety, we send drivers two per truck on longer deliveries. The drivers spend equal amounts of time behind the wheel, giving each of them a chance to rest. Both drivers are thus fully alert and able to work safely, yet we don’t have to stop the trucks overnight. This eliminates one of the most common sources of delay on longer deliveries.
