Critical PPS

Fastest transit time. Proactive monitoring. Guaranteed.

Your shipment is our mission critical.

Critical PPS is ideal for those most vital shipments that require an enhanced level of service from start to finish. When urgent medical shipments — or those last-minute legal documents — need more eyes on them throughout the journey, Critical PPS mobilizes our team to provide start-to-finish monitoring.

Because your peace of mind is our mission critical, our Customer Experience team proactively monitors every Critical PPS shipment at every checkpoint along the journey and provides prompt notifications and the highest trace priority.
