Scheduled Delivery Services

In today’s fast-paced world, convenience and flexibility are key. Scheduled delivery services offer a solution for those who want to receive their packages at a specific time that fits their busy schedules.

What is Scheduled Delivery?

Scheduled delivery is a option that allows you to choose a specific date and time window for your package to arrive. This differs from standard shipping, where the delivery window is broader, and the exact arrival time is unknown. Scheduled delivery services provide more control and predictability, ensuring you’re available to receive your package and avoid missed deliveries.

Hot Shot Final Mile offers same day scheduled delivery service or you can preschedule your delivery in advance. We also offer recurring scheduled delivery allowing you to customize the cadence and deliveries. Scheduled reoccurring deliveries can be set up on a daily, weekly, monthly, or even yearly frequency. Have the same pick-up and delivery every Tuesday and Thursday? We got you covered! From a pallet, to a box, or an envelope Hot Shot Final Mile is ready to handle all your scheduled delivery needs.

Enhanced Inventory Management – Scheduled deliveries allow businesses to maintain optimal inventory levels. They can precisely plan for incoming deliveries, ensuring they have the necessary stock on hand without the risk of overstocking or running out of essential supplies.
