A Duie Pyle, provider of asset and non-asset-based transportation and supply chain solutions in the Northeast, announces the opening of its newest transportation service center in Bronx, New York.
The facility enhances Pyle’s Northeast network and further strengthens Pyle’s AM delivery and pick-up capabilities in metro New York and Long Island.
Strategically located on the East River in Hunts Point, an industrial neighborhood in the southwest Bronx, Pyle’s service center and Express Solutions fleet of eco-friendly electric hybrid straight trucks will facilitate business-to-business and business-to-consumer deliveries in areas with restricted or limited access. This will ultimately increase freight velocity and flexibility for the company’s New York metro clients.
Pyle’s new service center provides easy access to the Bruckner Expressway (Interstate 278), which connects to I-95 and all major Northeast metropolitan areas. The firm is positioned to reduce the impacts of congestion that carriers often experience entering and exiting the city from New Jersey during the day.
“For many years, Pyle has been recognized for providing comprehensive and direct service in metro New York. The Bronx is an ideal location for us to build on this commitment to our customers,” said Randy Swart, chief operating officer for A Duie Pyle. “The new service center allows us to provide our current and future customers with unique transportation options in New York, expand Pyle’s expedited service capabilities in the area and develop quality capacity throughout the busiest and most dense region in the United States.”
The Bronx location will bring about 100 new jobs to the area, including opportunities for truck drivers, fleet techs, dockworkers and support personnel.
“A Duie Pyle’s new service center brings new economic development and significant job creation to the Bronx, and we welcome them to our borough,” said Ruben Diaz Jr, Bronx Borough president. “I look forward to seeing the great opportunities and growth Pyle will bring to the area, and to working with them to ensure that Bronx residents benefit from their opening here.”
This service center will include 77 doors for progressive loading and unloading, a full-service fleet maintenance garage, 6,846 square feet of office space, and a three-deck parking structure. The all-weather facility will feature 100% stand-by power generation, on-site snow removal capabilities, heated dock operations, secure fencing and a 24/7 monitoring system. A number of energy-efficient features will be installed to ensure environmental and energy conservation.
