Freight transportation and supply chain services provider A. Duie Pyle Inc. recently rolled out a new unit, entitled the Customized Solutions Group (CSG), which is comprised of four different business segments: Custom Dedicated, Truckload, Brokerage, and Warehousing & Distribution. 

“Our main objective with this new initiative is meeting the evolving supply chain needs of our customers,” a company spokesperson told LM. “With CSG’s four business segments (Custom Dedicated, Warehouse & Distribution, Truckload Solutions, and Brokerage Solutions), we’re able to continue providing enhanced, customized service offerings to our legacy customers while also adding new technologies, processes and capital to ensure all of our customers—current and future—remain in the forefront of innovation.”

The spokesperson said that A. Duie Pyle has had all four business segments in operation for quite some time, with some of these services going back to its inception more than 90 years ago. Over the past few years, the spokesperson said the company has taken the appropriate steps to formalize them into a business unit and enhance the operation to better service its customers.

“Customized Solutions Group customers can rest easy knowing they have the expertise and assets of the entire A. Duie Pyle team behind them, providing transportation and supply chain solutions that are customized to fit their ever changing business needs,” the spokesperson said.

Shippers and other ocean cargo carrier stakeholders should be cheering the announcement made today by The U.S. Coast Guard, as it formally notified the International Maritime Organization through a Declaration of Equivalency that the United States position on SOLAS is that there are multiple methods to submit the combined cargo and container weight (Verified Gross Mass or VGM).

The proposed $4.8 billion acquisition of TNT Express N.V. by FedEx took a major step closer to becoming official today, with the company and TNT announcing today that they have received unconditional approval of the offer from the Ministry of Commerce People’s Republic of China (MOCFCOM).

March shipments at 798,180 trailed February by 12 percent and were down 19 percent annually. For the entire first quarter, shipments were relatively flat annually, rising 0.27 percent to 2,587,988.

OCEMA says it has placed a priority on working with other stakeholders to find operational solutions that will help U.S. exporters, carriers, and marine terminals prepare for the implementation of the SOLAS Verified Gross Mass (VGM) rule.

The first quarter is typically the slowest period of freight demand for LTL carriers. With a few notable exceptions, that was reflected in first quarter earnings reports of the major publicly held LTL carriers.
