Pilot Freight Services recently tapped logistics expert Matt Hamilton as its chief operating officer of Cargo Services in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania.
“I am thrilled to join the team at Pilot and bring my operations management and sales expertise to the role. In this industry, success begins with listening to customers and having meaningful relationships built on mutual trust,” Hamilton reportedly said.
He brings upwards of 20 years of experience to the leadership role. Hamilton previously worked in areas of the supply chain that involved logistics and direct transportation, and will join Pilot after servings as a senior vice president at Kune + Neagle.
“Matt brings extensive experience to this role. His ability to lead with integrity and to motivate through trust and accountability will be integral to the long-term success of Pilot,” Pilot Freight Services CEO Zach Pollock reportedly said.
Ranking among the top 50 largest North American logistics operations, Pilot Freight possesses a footprint in wide-reaching transportation endeavors. Its domestic transportation provides 24/7 client support and integrated logistics. The global transport wing takes pride in reliability and hangs its hat on experience that exceeds 45 years of complete customs brokerage services. Pilot Freight also brings truckload brokerage solutions to the table by deploying 53-foot vans, flatbeds, and the ability to leverage oversized transportation logistics.
Hamilton joins an operation that was founded in 19070 as Pilot Air Freight and one that continues to grow and evolve to meet modern-day transportation and logistics needs. The growth has included topping $500 million in revenue in 2015 and the purchase of Manna Freight Systems to strengthen its e-commerce expertise in 2018.
Pilot’s thought leadership involves making decisions that consider the environment as a core value and replacing equipment that produced C02 emissions with EVs, among others. The Pennsylvania-based operation reportedly exceeded $874 million in gross revenue in 2020, netting upwards of $250 million.
