In the past few years we've expanded Pilot’s international footprint; first Amsterdam, followed by Toronto and most recently offices throughout Spain. I couldn't be happier to introduce the company’s newest additions, Mexico City and Vancouver. We issued a press release last month and the news has quickly taken off. The company, along with its new stations, have already been featured in publications such as The Philadelphia Business Journal, Air Cargo World, Logistics Management, and many more.
Both locations, opening in the first quarter of 2015, will be full-service stations and will allow Pilot to expand our offerings to current customers, while also providing us the opportunity to grow and attract new business. Vancouver’s position in the I-5 corridor, which runs up and down the West Coast of the U.S. into Canada, is a huge advantage along with the added access to the Far East that will allow for increased Asian import and export business. The Mexico City location will give us the presence we need to develop a national network in Latin America and better support our existing U.S. stations.
We've recruited the help of Alberto Ocha, who has seventeen years of experience in the international freight forwarding industry to manage the Mexico City location, and Lygdel DeLeon a thirteen year veteran in transportation and logistics to manage the Vancouver location.
Congratulations to the Pilot family as we continue to grow, and especially to those involved in getting these two stations off the ground!
