Pyle expands in Maryland and plans to open major logistics centre in 2020
A. Duie Pyle (Pyle), a transportation and supply chain solutions provider for the Northeastern US, has opened a 21-door service centre and is constructing an integrated logistics centre in Hagerstown, Maryland.
The new integrated logistics centre, which is scheduled to open in 2020, will include more than 80 cross-dock doors for expedited loading and unloading along with a 200,000-square-foot warehouse and full-service fleet maintenance garage.
This future Hagerstown integrated logistics centre will also provide warehousing with same- and next-day distribution, assembly and value-added project capabilities, final-mile delivery options, consolidation and de-consolidation, and complete integration with Pyle’s LTL, Brokerage, Custom Dedicated and Warehouse and Distribution solutions.
The new facilities expand Pyle’s Northeast network and allow the company to provide higher levels of service while building additional capacity for customers in the region.
Pyle is building the centre in Hagerstown as it is located in proximity to the I-81 & I-70 corridors as well as nearby rail yards, offering quick and easy access to all major Northeast and Mid-Atlantic metropolitan areas.
“Pyle has provided comprehensive service to the Hagerstown region for many years, making the area an ideal location for us to build on our commitment to our customers,” said John Luciani, COO, LTL Services, at A. Duie Pyle. “Opening a new service centre means we will now have a physical presence in a leased facility for the immediate term. This will allow us to provide a higher level of service to our customers as we are investing in building a new, state-of-the-art integrated logistics centre to add further capacity and offer a complete range of integrated transportation, warehousing and distribution services under one roof. The new service centre will also give customers the ability to easily source multiple solutions to improve customer service, control costs and streamline operations.”
