Pilot's Commitment to Excellence-
Ownership, Communication, and Responsible Growth
The mission of Pilot is to allow our customers to focus on their
business by making the transportation of their goods easy, fast and dependable.
To do this, Pilot:
- Promotes ownership. Ownership means that Pilot people take personal responsibility
for the performance of the company, and reap personal reward for excellent work.
The origin and destination stations are primarily responsible for making sure their
freight is moving correctly. At the same time, every Pilot employee owns every
piece of freight in the system. They are always aware of its status, and are all
responsible for ensuring that it arrives at its destination on time and intact.
Ownership means responding to each customers unique needs, and following every
shipment every time, to ensure that those needs are met.
Promotes communication. Pilot communicates regularly with its customers regarding
the services they need, and Pilots performance of those services. This communication
includes the full and realistic explanation of what Pilot will do to serve the customer,
as well as periodic performance reviews, and, where appropriate, notification to
the customer of the status of individual shipments. Pilot will never give excuses,
and will always serve its customers with the utmost loyalty and honesty. Pilot
stations also communicate regularly with each other, to avoid problems before they
occur, and to solve problems quickly when they do occur.
Promotes responsible growth. Pilot will not take freight that it cannot service,
and it will make certain that new customers do not interfere with its commitment
to existing customers. At the same time, Pilot aggressively pursues new customers,
new markets and new ways of servicing existing markets.
