In the mid 90s, "Just-In-Time" inventory methods were adopted throughout the manufacturing industry. Due to the nature of these methods, emergency freight delivery was necessary to ensure that manufacturing processes would not stop due to a lack of parts.
Manufacturers were usually left with two options for fulfilling this need. The first option was to use a full service national expediter. While the service and vehicle availability from these companies was very good, the cost was very high. The second option was to use multiple local carriers. With these carriers, the service varied widely and vehicle availability was erratic, but the rate per mile was much less. This need for a full service, local "Just-In-Time" delivery service was the basis for the creation of Indy Expediting Nationwide.
