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.

A. Duie Pyle Inc. officials described the new CSG offerings as the following:

Dedicated Solutions include fleet creation and replacement, specialized equipment, and engineered solutions for fleet optimization;

Truckload solutions can be easily integrated into Less-Than-Truckload (LTL) and/or Warehousing & Distribution resources for a single source solution;

Backed by a knowledgeable team, Pyle’s Brokerage Solutions facilitates shipments from beginning to end and provides flexible and dependable capacity to meet routine and special requests.
