From ordering to delivery of equipment, there are any number of reasons why a transaction may stall or fail. However, for critical equipment and infrastructure purchases, quick and smooth transactions are key to maintaining operational effectiveness and meeting client demands. Expediting services from Bureau Veritas experts can help to ensure this.
Expediting requires detailed and quantified analysis of causes and effects at every step, including order status, inventory of equipment in stock, design verifications, manufacturing progression, testing, packing, shipment and delivery.
Our expeditors work on site to monitor and follow-up on the progress of various critical path tasks. They improve visibility to enhance the performance and successful execution of purchase contracts, across all materials and services.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF EXPEDITING SERVICES?
- Ensure transactions run smoothly and without delay
- Improve communication and visibility throughout purchase contracts
- Reduce the risk of financial or operational impact from delays

Our prime objective is to have the delivery occur at the due date and in compliance with our client’s specifications.
Bureau Veritas expeditors visit manufacturing plants to ascertain and confirm the pre-manufacturing, manufacturing and post-manufacturing activities through interviews and visual examination.
They evaluate the actual progress against the scheduled manufacturing progress and use their experience to determine if tasks need to be escalated to maintain the scheduled delivery.
Our expeditor visits are generally made to coincide with the milestone activities to assure completion is in line with the production plan. Typical steps will include:
- Verify that purchasing specifications have been properly understood and applied on-site
- Identify difficulties or issues which may affect the time delivery of the client’s products
- Facilitate communication between client and suppliers
