If slippages against schedules are identified, the field expediter will inquire into the causes of delays and recovery actions.
Consists in phone or email follow-up of a project towards delivering in the shortest leadtime possible. Photographic evidence are usually made available with the precise standing of an order in the desk expediting process.
