What is the difference between the project coordinator and the project expeditor?

It seems to me that there is no difference between the project coordinator and the project expeditor (they both mean the same thing and refer to the same person).

However, some references stress they're not the same thing and the project coordinator is not the same as the project expeditor, without clarifying the differences.

Is it possible for anyone to clarify those difference (if any) between the two?

The Project Expediter monitors and reports on the status of the project to senior management. This role has no authority. The Project Expediter acts as a communication coordinator only and cannot enforce any decisions
The Project Coordinator role is similar to expediter, but has some limited, referential authority. The Project Coordinator has some authority to make decisions.
