PITT OHIO, Averitt Express and Land Air Build Successful Pool Distribution Program

Pittsburgh, PA (January 26th, 2015) – World Trade 100 magazine, a leading transportation industry publication, and SMC³, an industry trade association, have awarded PITT OHIO, its TRNet affiliates Averitt Express and Land Air and customer Vicro with an Alliance Award in the Domestic Freight Single Mode category.

PITT OHIO, Averitt and Land Air developed a hybrid pool distribution program in an effort to help Vicro meet its seasonal peak while improving service and reducing costs. According to Paul Gall, corporate director of logistics for Vicro, “the results were a smoother peak season for Vicro, better service, less damage, and substantial cost savings because the carriers in this Alliance took the attitude that they were moving product, not volume.”

The Alliance awards program, now in its third year, recognizes excellence in supply chain performance resulting from the close cooperation and collaboration of supply chain partners. Awarded in five distinct categories, The Alliance looks at more than the outcome of the supply chain partnerships; it also examines the dynamic partnerships that were formed to drive results. A panel of distinguished judges examined the role of each of the partners and the contributions their individual and collective efforts made to solving a supply chain problem or driving change and continuous improvement in a supply chain.

The award was presented at SMC3’s Jump Start conference in January.
