A. Duie Pyle Expands Heated Trailer Fleet for Winter Season

Leading Supply Chain Solutions Provider Offers Comprehensive Service to Protect Water-Based Products During Cold Winter Temperatures

WEST CHESTER, PA--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2014) - A. Duie Pyle (Pyle), the premier leader in asset and non-asset-based transportation and supply chain solutions in the Northeast, announces the start of its PFF (Protect from Freeze) program for the 2014/2015 winter season. Pyle's PFF service allows customers who ship water-based product to transport less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments without the fear that their products will be damaged by freezing temperatures. Pyle has added 80 new heated/insulated trailers this season, augmenting its existing pool of over 400 heated/insulated units.

"Many businesses that ship and/or receive water-based products will find that freight carriers won't transport their products during cold snaps," said Randy Swart, COO of A. Duie Pyle. "Pyle's Protect From Freezing service is different. Because of the strategic investments we've made in infrastructure, systems, equipment and training, our customers are able to secure their supply chain against freezing temperatures 24 hours a day, 7 days a week without interruption."

During last season's Polar Vortex winter, Pyle delivered over 43,000 temperature-sensitive shipments requiring PFF service. Because of last winter's PFF demand, Pyle has expanded its heated fleet, increasing capacity to protect freeze sensitive shipments for an ever growing list of customers who depend on Pyle for protection. 

A. Duie Pyle's comprehensive PFF (Protect from Freezing) service consists of heated service centers and heated/insulated trailers for line haul, pick up, and delivery operations providing around the clock protection. These initiatives and investments are supported by temperature sensitive load planning and routing technology. Each Pyle service center is equipped with on-site, company-owned snow removal equipment and independent emergency power sources to protect customers' shipments and assure continuous operations during even the most severe weather event.

"Everything changes in the Northeast when the temperature drops," said Swart. "From snow to extreme temperatures, Pyle's Protect from Freeze program is the most comprehensive in the Northeast, ensuring shipments are handled with care and delivered on time." For information about A.
