Pilot Freight Services, a provider of transportation and logistics services, has announced that it will open stations in Mexico City, Mexico, and Vancouver, Canada, in the first quarter of 2015. The locations will become the company’s fourth and fifth international stations. Both offices will open as full-service stations offering air, ocean, ground, import, export, logistics and home delivery services.
“We are constantly looking for ways to extend our support service offerings for our customers while at the same time expanding opportunities for growth and new business, especially internationally. That’s exactly what Mexico City and Vancouver will offer and why we are looking forward to opening these new stations,” said Gordon Branov, Executive Vice President of business development for Pilot Freight Services. “Both offices will help facilitate more business in and out of Canada and Mexico, and will allow Pilot to harbour new relationships as we continue to grow.”
The Mexico City station will be managed by Alberto Ocha, a seventeen-year veteran of the international freight forwarding industry. The station will be located in Delegacion Cuauhtemoc.
“Access to big decision makers, the low cost of implementation and development, as well as vendor capabilities for ground, air and ocean make Mexico City the most important location in Mexico for Pilot to have a presence. We plan to develop a national network there to support our US stations,” said Branov.
Pilot Vancouver will give the company the capability to offer more access to the Far East, allowing for increased Asian import and export business. The Vancouver station will be managed by Lygdel DeLeon, who came to Pilot with thirteen years of experience in transportation and logistics. The station will be located in Richmond.
