Regular Shipment:  Your order should arrive 5 - 7 days after order has been approved by APL.

RUSH/STAT Shipment:  1 - 2 days after order is approved (a reason for RUSH/STAT is required, please see the FAQs).

Same Day Delivery:  APL/Cardinal are unable to provide same day delivery for supplies.  If you require an item same day, please contact APL to determine if the required item is available for pick-up.

I need an order sooner than my regular order day, but it is not a RUSH/STAT shipment.
