A West Chester company is driving innovation in the trucking industry, and last week A. Duie Pyle hauled in Fleet Owner magazine’s 2016 Fleet of the Year award.

One of five top industry honors was presented to A. Duie Pyle Director of Fleet Maintenance Dan Carrano during the 2017 Technology & Maintenance Council Convention in Nashville, according to a Fleet Owner staff report.

“Our editors interact with hundreds of fleets in the course of a year, and while all have valuable stories to tell, a few simply stand out from the rest — for their management skills, for their successes, and most of all, for their innovative approaches to excellence in fleet operations.”

A. Duie Pyle showcased innovative safety, customer service, and continuous improvement among for-hire less-than-truckload shippers.

“The motor carrier was specifically recognized for its unique Protect from Freeze (PFF) service, its efforts to develop truck drivers from within the ranks of its own warehouse personnel, and environmental efforts, such as installing solar panels on several of its warehouses to reduce energy consumption — all while remaining a fourth-generation family-owned business,” the article explained.
