Lima, Pa.—May 5, 2015—Pilot Freight Services, a worldwide provider of transportation and logistics services, announced today that it has expanded its operations to Mexico, where it is now doing business as Pilot de Mexico. The first station under the Pilot de Mexico brand, located in Mexico City, is a full service operation serving Pilot customers' transportation and logistics needs within the city and the interior states of Mexico. The station offers operational and administrative support, warehousing and logistics services, and access to northbound, southbound and intra-Mexico ground and air transportation.
In addition to these services, Pilot de Mexico has a sales presence in the market that expects to make an impact in the country, solidifying the company’s plans to open additional Mexican stations in the months and years ahead. Opening a station in this critical market will allow the company to provide the same level of care and expertise in Mexico that Pilot customers have come to count on in the United States and other international markets.
“For Pilot, Mexico is a market with tremendous growth and potential. Its economy is the 11th largest in the world, so it was a natural step in our continued growth,” said Richard Phillips, CEO of Pilot Freight Services. “The country has been one of the United States’ best trading partners for years, and to have a Pilot presence will only make our relationships with Pilot customers in Mexico stronger. We’re eager to get started, and confident in Pilot de Mexico’s future.”
Pilot de Mexico will be managed by Alberto Ocha, a seventeen-year veteran of the international freight forwarding industry, and will be located at Paseo de la Reforma 412, Piso 7, Suites 764, 766, 768 and 770, Colonia Juarez, Delegacion Cuauhtemoc, Mexico DF 06600.
