Transit Time

The time it takes for a shipment to travel from its origin to its destination, including any intermediate stops or delays.

What is Transit Time?

Transit time is a critical aspect of logistics and transportation planning, as it directly impacts the efficiency, reliability, and overall performance of the supply chain. In most cases, it’s directly related to lead time considerations. It is a key consideration for shippers, carriers, and consignees when determining delivery schedules, managing inventory, and meeting customer expectations.

Transit times are also a factor in setting shipping rates, since more time tends to mean longer routes and more fuel consumed.
