Pilot Freight Services Opens First Station in Canada

Transportation and logistics service provider’s Toronto station marks its second international location

Lima, Pa.—Feb. 27, 2012Pilot Freight Services, global provider of transportation and logistics services, opened its new location in Toronto, its first in Canada, which will handle shipments into and out of the provinces of Ontario and Quebec, working in conjunction with the company's Canadian partner, Concord Transportation.

The Toronto location is the second full-service station for Pilot outside of the U.S., following the announcement of its first European station in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

“As we looked to continue expanding our international footprint, Toronto was a natural choice,” said Gordon Branov, Executive Vice President of Business Development for Pilot Freight Services. “Canada is currently the United States' largest trading partner, and Toronto is one of the largest import/export markets in North America. Positioning ourselves in this major transportation hub gives us the opportunity to provide more hands-on customer service to our customers in Canada, and expanded options for international export from Toronto to all of our North American customers.”

The Toronto station provides such transportation and logistics services including air, ocean, ground and logistics capabilities. It will be managed by Andy Harris, a 20-year veteran of the international freight-forwarding industry. The station is located at 96 Disco Road, Etobicoke, ON M9W OA3 Canada.
