Pilot Freight Services was officially announced as Walmart Supply Chain’s selection for “E-Commerce Provider of the Year,” taking the spot for one of the six annual award categories for transportation providers.
“2018 was a year of unprecedented change in the transportation industry. As our supply chain network has evolved with greater efficiency and new ways of working, so have many of our carrier partners’,” said Ken Braunbach, vice president of Inbound Transportation for Walmart. “The companies recognized have provided Walmart with innovative and improved service offerings that ultimately help us lower our cost to our customers and stay in stock, both on the shelf in our stores or online.”
The global transportation and logistics services provider achieved this status as a result of the company’s operational excellence across its extended network which includes Walmart e-commerce deliveries for all stations. Additionally, the company provided services that ultimately supported Walmart Supply Chain’s customer-focused service requirements.
“It is an honor to be recognized by Walmart as a provider that innovates, improves services and lowers costs to customers,” said Gordon Branov, chief executive officer of Pilot Freight Services. “Our dedicated employees continue to go above and beyond for our clients to create customized solutions and provide an outstanding customer experience while impacting the bottom line. That is exactly what Pilot strives for every day.”
