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.
