 A. Duie Pyle, a100-year-old family-owned and operated provider of asset and non-asset-based services, recently announced it opened the doors of a new facility in New York City to further enhance its Northeast network and strengthen its position in the region. The opening of this facility is the company's second expansion in 2024.

Located at 58-60 Page Place in Maspeth, Queens the facility will extend access to Pyle’s LTL services and includes 77 LTL service center doors with an on-site fleet maintenance shop. Upon its opening, the facility added 25 drivers, 12 dock workers and eight leaders. Pyle plans to have the facility fully staffed by the end of 2024, adding 49 additional jobs.

A statement from the company said the new facility is strategically positioned to efficiently service what it called "the most significant and demanding consumer population in the U.S." Pyle also said it has plans to expand the campus to further accommodate growth in New York City.

“This strategic expansion into Queens allows us to significantly enhance our service offerings in the busiest region of the U.S. supply chain and maintain our commitment to providing first-rate solutions for our customers," said John Luciani, COO of LTL Solutions. “By increasing our network capacity in the New York metropolitan area, we can not only better service our customers, but also fuel local economic growth by boosting job opportunities. We’re one of the few carriers in the industry that services New York City direct, and this further strengthens our network.”

According to the company, opening a second service center in the New York metropolitan area allows Pyle to offer earlier deliveries and later pickups, thereby increasing flexibility for customers. Placing service centers within the New York City boroughs enhances efficiency and equips Pyle with the agility to respond quickly to customers’ changing requirements. The expansion not only facilitates access to new market opportunities but also reinforces Pyle’s presence in the region, the company's statement said.
