What is Expediting?

Expediting is the activity of tracking the progress of production, procurement, or construction activities and taking actions to keep the project on schedule or expedite delivery when necessary. It involves periodic visits to supplier locations to track progress, expediting shipments, and coordinating with project managers and stakeholders to ensure that commitments are being met.
