Pilot Freight Services has shown over a very long period of time that they are a reliable company in their industry that is very well respected. How the company was able to become very successful and rise above their competition is very interesting. The company started small and took a lot of time to take off. It was 1970 when Philadelphia was chosen to be the location of their first office. Things did not go well at first. The things that helped the company to prosper in the early days were the attitude and business acumen of the people who worked there.
Pilot Freight Services was not in very good financial shape in 1993. There was a very good chance that the company might have to go bankrupt. However, the company found its savior in a man by the name of Richie Phillips. He found the company very interesting and he decided to purchase it. He had an amazing business mind that got the company to a point where it was finally making a profit again. The money was flowing in as it had never done during the entire history of the company. Richie knew the freight business inside and out. The company had risen from the ashes to be a very important logistical business.
