In Preparation for Winter, A. Duie Pyle Begins Protect From Freeze Service

Published by:

WEST CHESTER, PA–(Marketwired – Nov 1, 2016) – A. Duie Pyle (Pyle), the premier leader in asset and non-asset-based transportation and supply chain solutions in the Northeast, announces the expansion of its Protect From Freeze (PFF) service for the 2016/2017 winter season. During the year Pyle added 40 new heated and insulated trailers to its fleet, making Pyle’s PFF fleet of 500 heated/insulated trailers the largest in the region. Pyle’s PFF less-than-truckload service enables customers to ship water-based products with full protection from freezing temperatures.

“Supply chains experience a unique set of challenges in the Northeast including the impacts of congestion and weather,” said Randy Swart, COO of A. Duie Pyle. “During the winter season our customers depend on our experience in the region and our investments in equipment, infrastructure, training and technology to ensure temperature sensitive shipments are protected from freezing.”

When asked where we should meet to talk, without missing a beat, Hans Trey answers: “In the International Maritime Museum.” After asking how long it would last and being told at least an hour, he responds: “That long, really?” But it ultimately turns out to be more than three hours. It was like time just flew by. Or do seafarers use another saying?

It was like time just flew by. Or do seafarers use another saying?

People from Hamburg are, no doubt, a bit cold at first. But after three hours, Trey has warmed up to operating temperature. “Do we still want to go to the simulator?” he asks. And without waiting for a response, he says: “We just have to go to the simulator! After all, that’s my simulator!” Then Trey laughs, more of a mischievous he-he than a guffaw.

When Lloyd went Underwater

Published by:

The sea route across the Atlantic was under blockade – so Norddeutscher Lloyd had a submarine built during World War I. The incredible story of the submarine cargo ship “Deutschland”.

Jules Verne, the French author who caused a sensation with his science fiction novels “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” and “Around the World in Eighty Days” could not have come up with a better story: a trading voyage not on, but under the sea – with a submarine carrying not torpedoes, but valuable cargo. This is no fairy tale, however, but a true story. Long before it merged with Hapag, which was still its main competitor, Norddeutscher Lloyd played a key role in this bizarre, almost forgotten episode in the middle of World War I.
