Pilot Freight Services Named E-Commerce Carrier of the Year
LIMA, PA – April 1, 2019 – Pilot Freight Services (Pilot), a worldwide provider of transportation and logistics services, was recognized by Walmart Supply Chain as one of six Walmart Transportation Carriers of the Year in different service categories. Pilot has been selected as the E-Commerce Carrier of the Year, further cementing the logistic company’s position in the quickly-growing e-commerce field. In 2018, Pilot’s revenues reached a record-breaking high, partly due to the expansion of e-commerce services and their investments in final mile capabilities, specifically within e-commerce.
“It is an honor to be recognized by Walmart,” said John Hill, president and chief commercial officer of Pilot Freight Services. “2018 was another year of growth for us and to continue meeting the high standards that our clients expect while steadily increasing operations – it just goes to show that Pilot employees are dedicated to excellence at each stop along the way, and for that I am very proud.”
Carriers were chosen based on dedication to customer service and communication that actively improve service levels within the intricate Walmart supply chain. Partner companies must be able to provide operational excellence in order to meet the transportation goals set by Walmart as part of their end-to-end supply chain.
“2018 was a year of unprecedented change in the transportation industry. As our supply chain network has evolved with greater efficiency and new ways of working, so have many of our carrier partners’,” said Ken Braunbach, vice president of Inbound Transportation for Walmart. “The companies recognized have provided Walmart with innovative and improved service offerings that ultimately help us lower our cost to our customers and stay in stock, both on the shelf in our stores or online.”
