Pilot Freight Services, a worldwide provider of transportation and logistics services, recently announced new warehouse locations in Texas and Boston, with an increase in its Foreign Trade Zone capacity in El Paso. Pilot’s warehouses now total 167,000 square feet in El Paso with the addition of a new location at 1320 Henry Brennan Drive. The second property will double the size of its previous location to 80,000 square feet. Pilot is dedicating 48,000 square feet within this facility to significantly increase its Foreign Trade Zone capacity.
Pilot ELP FTZ offers US- based companies the option to defer, reduce or eliminate customs duties on its products admitted to the zone. The station’s close proximity to the Zaragoza Bridge allows for shorter transit times to the Mexican border and has the ability to warehouse raw materials and products in a central location before being shipped to Mexico. Pilot has expanded and relocated their Boston warehouse facility to 13 Centennial Drive, Peabody, MA. The relocation provides Pilot Boston with a facility that doubles the size of the previous warehouse and office space to 48,000 square feet.
“Our new warehouse expansions in El Paso and Boston enable us to enhance our services and capacity to provide client-focused solutions,” said John Hill, president and chief commercial officer. “Our increased FTZ is a response to the growing demand to provide cost-effective supply chain and transportation options to Mexico.”
