As the third quarter comes to a close and we gear up to handle record volumes of home delivery business this holiday season, I want to congratulate the folks in our Seattle station, who had a phenomenal month in August. The station brought in $6.27 million in revenue for the month, beating out the previous company-wide monthly record by about $500,000.
I spoke with Seattle station owner Patrick Allen, who credited the station’s success to strong numbers from established customers, as well as landing several new clients. I personally visited there last month, and every employee in the office is totally focused on customer experience, and on spreading the word that there is something special at Pilot. The atmosphere is electric. Patrick has long talked about how proud he is of his whole team, and that pride shows in the way they handled the unprecedented volume.
Congratulations to the Seattle team, and we look forward to seeing who will set the next record!
Seattle, Wa.—September 28, 2011—Pilot Freight Services, a worldwide provider of transportation and logistics services, announced today that its Seattle station has set a company record for highest single monthly revenue. The station generated $6.27 million in revenue for the month of August, beating out the company’s previous record by half a million dollars.
Station owner Patrick Allen attributes the outstanding month to a mix of existing business including locally harvested perishables like cherries and peaches, and new accounts that have been recently secured.
“We saw unprecedented volume through our station in August,” said Allen. “I’m extremely proud of the way the entire Seattle team came together to maintain the level of quality service our customers have come to expect from us. It was a total team effort across the board.”
