Express mode is faster & expensive compared to Surface mode. The shipments under Express mode move through either single or multiple modes of transport, viz., speed tucking or combination of Air and/or rail and surface.
In speed trucking, the shipments move through surface, but have lesser nos of transit points. In surface shipments, the shipments would move entirely on surface mode and there could be more transit points based on the route followed by each carrier.
