The most options & quality seating at quick ship in the contract furniture industry.
At Via Seating, we don’t just have a quick ship program—we’re a quick ship company. Over 95% of our offerings are quick ship. Compare Via Seating lead times with other quick-ship programs and you’ll find we offer the greatest selection of quality seating with the broadest range of options. And we have always been that way. When we opened our doors in 1987, we introduced a new concept to the contract furniture industry. We launched our 48-hour manufacturing time and we did it on every chair, every fabric & every leather.
While our quick ship process is customized & not prescribed, the following shows the typical timeline of an approved project being handled on a quick ship schedule. Our dedicated project experts work hand-in-hand with you every step of the way to achieve your project deadlines.

Quick Ship Program Statement
Published: 01/01/1987 | Last Updated: 03/02/2023
This Quick Ship Program Statement is provided to you by VIA, Inc. (hereafter referred to as “Via Seating”, “we”, “us”, “our”).
The majority of Via Seating products use in-stock textiles. A certain amount of these products are able to be built within a 48 hour period (2 business days). This is identified as a “48 Hour Manufacturing Schedule”. These production capability schedules are outlined below per chair series, model & complex options. These schedules do not include the business day to process a completed order, the business day to pack the order & transit time once the order has shipped out.
As we understand not all products are needed on quick ship, your ship or delivery date must be clearly included on your PO.
