Pilot Piscataway Becomes Company’s First FDA-Regulated Warehouse

Pilot’s largest logistics-only facility is now the company’s first FDA-regulated warehouse. Situated in Piscataway, NJ, the central location in the Northeast translates into several transportation advantages for customers: one-day point to most of the Northeast; two-day point as far south as Atlanta; and prime inbound container location for port of New York/Newark. One of its newest customers collects canned food donations, which necessitated the FDA certification. Pilot must adhere to certain pest control processes, cleanliness and sanitation standards and is subject to inspection by the FDA. Pilot’s eWMS system allows products to be handled as FIFO (first in, first out), ensuring perishables are rotated and expiration dates tracked. At 65,000 square feet, the Piscataway facility gives Pilot excellent leverage to handle a variety of warehouse needs in the U.S.
