SEMCO Expediting services are designed to strategically ensure that goods and items purchased from our Customers arrive in a timely fashion and meet quality control standards. In big projects, supply chain or procurement is a fragmented activity that, with the help of specialist such as SEMCO experts, may take additional value to the project itself. When expediting is done by an external ‘expediter’ in cooperation with the procurement department, you will have the guarantee that goods will be checked as to their progress and opportunity to achieve the programmed delivery date. Typically SEMCO expediters ensure that they meet all targets, including quality, safe packaging, arrival times and are exactly to the specification that was agreed between the supplier and the customer. Expediting can be time intensive and this can produce a drain in resources. However despite this it’s a common process and is symptomatic of various issues within the supply chain.
Despite expediting being time intensive the costs of using SEMCO expediters is always absorbed against the cost of late delivery – the cost of the service is insignificant when compared to penalty clauses bestowed by customer contracts. Phil Murray – Procurament Director

Why Choosing Us
Thanx to SEMCO, Expediting has been demonstrated being a Key Management Tool. Whilst many forms of expediting may just be in practice a routine phone call to the supplier, it has been proven that it can be extremely useful in complex programmes where timely delivery is crucial (either from a financial perspective of other) and that advanced knowledge of supplier issues (in order that they can be mitigated).
