A. Duie Pyle’s warehouse facility in Westfield, Mass., was the recipient of Scotts Miracle-Gro Co.’s “Outstanding Warehouse Service Performance for 2008 Award.” The award was presented at Scotts Annual Distribution Conference.
In addition, Scotts presented its “2008 Outstanding On-Time Truckload Service Award” to A. Duie Pyle’s Transport Services Group, which provides truckload services throughout the Northeast with a 150-unit fleet of vans. Scotts presented the award to A. Duie Pyle in the asset-based truckload carrier category. To qualify, carriers must handle more than 1,000 truckload shipments during Scotts’ fiscal year.
The Scotts award for outstanding service performance was presented to the Westfield Warehouse facility for A. Duie Pyle’s willingness to go above and beyond Scotts’ service expectations. “A. Duie Pyle has been supporting Scotts in the Northeast with outstanding warehousing and transportation services for many years, and has been an important element of our supply chain success in this challenging market,” says Jim Lovino, vice president of global distribution and logistics for Scotts Miracle-Gro Co.
A. Duie Pyle, based in West Chester, Pa., says it is the Northeast’s only regional carrier company with an asset-based warehousing capability, with six facilities and about 2 million square feet of space. An additional A. Duie Pyle warehouse facility under construction in Westfield is scheduled for completion in early 2009.
