Pilot Freight Services (Pilot), a worldwide provider of transportation and logistics services, was recognized by Technicolor as the 2018 Logistics Provider of the Year. A long-term Pilot customer based in Memphis, TN, Technicolor powers premium content made accessible through their next-generation video solutions and innovative entertainment collaborations worldwide.
Technicolor, a 3PL for major motion picture studios, mainly utilizes Pilot to handle time-specific deliveries of DVD displays to big-box retailers and Pilot played a major role in Technicolor's critical fourth quarter deliveries. "Pilot pulled out all the stops to make sure we were in every store we needed to be in for Black Friday and continued their stellar support through the busy holiday season," said Elaine Singleton, vice president of supply chain at Technicolor.
Staff within Technicolor's supply chain voted to award Pilot the Logistics Provider of the Year based on the following criteria: on-time service; communication and proactive tracking; billing accuracy; and proof of delivery.
"We are thrilled to be recognized by Technicolor as their Logistics Provider of the Year," said John Hill, president and chief commercial officer of Pilot. "We've had a longstanding relationship with Technicolor and our abilities to coordinate and handle time-specific deliveries have been able to help us both grow in our respective industries."
