The Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) Glossary of procurement terms, defines expedite as: ‘To make special requests and make additional effort to ensure goods are delivered in less than the normal lead time.’
It suggests that expediting is: ‘Monitoring the progress of an order to ensure stock is received as quickly as possible’ and an expeditor is: ‘The person in the buying organisation who carries out the expediting function in procurement, which means following the issue of a purchase order or contract from receipt of order by supplier, through to delivery, dealing with delivery problems as they arise.’
