Lima, PA – December 8, 2017 – Pilot Freight Services (Pilot), a worldwide provider of transportation and logistics services, announces the opening of a 65,000 sq. ft. multi-client warehouse located at 270 Old New Brunswick Road in Piscataway, NJ. This new venture is Pilot’s largest multi-client operation at opening and their first in the Northeast. It will serve to help Pilot’s network of Northeast clients meet the needs of their customers quickly and with flexibility.
Pilot is pleased to bring their decades of knowledge and resources in logistics and inventory management to continue to serve their clients, from all angles. Using Pilot’s shared warehousing reduces the risks and costs involved in opening a private, dedicated facility or using a public warehouse. Pilot opened their first multi-client operation in Chicago in 2010 followed by warehouses in Dallas, Toronto, Los Angeles and Orlando. This new multi-client warehouse gives clients of all sizes and scope located in the saturated Northeast market the ability to store, distribute and manage transportation operations, all under Pilot’s trusted name. Clients can fully customize the experience to fit their needs by outsourcing distribution, packaging and transportation management to highly trained Pilot employees. Pilot also has the ability to operate as a 3PL, managing customers’ transportation providers and their contacts.
Strategically located in Piscataway, the new warehouse is in proximity to multiple major airports and accesses the Port of New Jersey. As the largest multi-client warehouse opened by Pilot, the location was also influenced by specific customer needs and demands. In early 2018, Pilot will open a new 140,000 sq. ft. facility expanding their multi-client warehousing in Las Vegas by 40,000 sq. ft. to accommodate multi-client operations.
In addition to providing services and warehousing for retail and B2B industries, the Piscataway station is also outfitted to handle sensitive materials for clients that fulfill medical device orders. The building and staff have met rigorous documentation requirements to ensure quality processes and procedures. Upon opening, the warehouse will operate five days a week with after-hours and holiday on-call capabilities. Hours of operation will change to meet customer requirements and volumes and Pilot plans to operate 24 hours, seven days a week during peak seasons to meet client demands timely and efficiently.
“Our experience and dedication to providing full-service, turnkey solutions across the country makes this a next natural step,” said John Hill, president and chief commercial officer. “We’re excited to expand our offerings in the Northeast and give our clients unsurpassed flexibility and customization in their warehousing needs.”
