What is Early Shipment (S)?

Early Shipment (S) refers to a situation where a shipment is picked up and transported by a carrier before the scheduled pickup date. This can occur due to a variety of factors, such as a change in the shipper’s schedule or a carrier’s availability. Early shipment can be beneficial in some cases as it allows for faster delivery and can help ensure that goods arrive at their destination on time. However, it can also result in additional costs or complications if the recipient is not ready to receive the goods earlier than expected.
