The Pilot Milwaukee team is enjoying its 49,000-square-foot facility and the significant process improvements the new building brings. The warehouse includes nine dock-high doors—one for drive-in—and parking for 25 trailers. A digital security system provides coverage inside and outside, and the building infrastructure employs state-of-the-art, energy-efficient technology. “The growth of several Fortune 500 accounts, as well as imports and exports, dictated the need to expand,” says Jim Best, franchise owner. “Our home delivery business also continues to grow, which requires additional warehouse space.” In the near future, the facility will be bonded so that the station can hold imports on its docks, a value-added service for Pilot customers. “Our expansion came at the right time, as the Wisconsin economy continues to grow and demand is increasing for expedited domestic and international services,” says Jim.
