A. Duie Pyle Named Green Supply Chain Partner by Inbound Logistics

Pyle Chosen Due to Its Sustainable Transportation Practices

WEST CHESTER, PA--(Marketwired - Jul 23, 2015) -   A. Duie Pyle (Pyle), the leader in asset and non-asset-based-transportation and supply chain solutions in the Northeast, has been named one of Inbound Logistics' 75 Green Supply Chain Partners (G75) for the first time. Inbound Logistics, a magazine geared toward demand-driven logistics, chose Pyle based on its measurable green results, sustainability innovation, continuous improvement and industry recognition. 

"We're committed to reducing our environmental footprint and proud to see our efforts recognized, as we're always striving to integrate sustainability into our business," said Randy Swart, COO of A. Duie Pyle. "Our environmental initiatives go beyond our fleet with a reduction of energy use at our warehouses, terminals and maintenance shops as well."

One of Pyle's warehouse campuses in Parkesburg, Pennsylvania, encompassing over half a million square feet, is completely powered by solar energy. All docks at Pyle's facilities are paperless and new maintenance shops have radiant heated flooring and motion-activated lighting. All used oil is also recycled. Furthermore, to optimize rolling resistance and reduce fossil fuel consumption, Pyle regularly performs tire inspection and engine maintenance on all of its vehicles, and invests in state-of-the-art self-inflating tires to maintain proper air pressure at all times. Pyle's trucks are governed to a maximum speed of 68 miles per hour, and long-haul trailers have aerodynamic skirts, both of which help conserve fuel consumption. 

A family-owned and operated business for more than 91 years, A. Duie Pyle provides a range of integrated transportation and distribution services supported by 24 transportation service centers and 9 warehouses strategically located throughout the Northeast region. Through its Customized Solutions Group, Pyle provides a variety of asset and non-asset based services including Custom Dedicated fleet operations, integrated Warehousing & Distribution services through 2.2 million square feet of public and contract warehousing space, and specialized asset and non-asset based truckload services through its Truckload Solutions.
