A Message from the President
Here’s a quick message from the president of PGT, Tony Uhrina. He provides you with a company-wide update and everything that has happened in the last month. Give it a quick read!
The PGT team does it again!
Our team has had another record month in a very dynamic freight and transportation environment. Our success wouldn’t be possible without our loyal customers and carrier partners.
That said, the PGT team continues to stick to the basics as it pertains to our customers and carriers. Each individual on the team continues to provide unrivaled customer service and communication. As we continue to interface with our customers and understand the complexities of each of their supply chains, one thing becomes very evident, the service the PGT staff provides is necessary and appreciated. It’s not always perfect but we promise to deliver winning solutions to our customers and carrier partners!
Freight Market & Trends
Operating costs for carriers continue to rise due to increased cost of diesel fuel, while spot market rates have begun to level out from historical COVID levels. New carrier entrants continue to fall out of the market and deactivate MC authorities due to the rising cost of operation, thus slowly thinning capacity. So long as truck capacity remains greater than the number of dispatchable loads, the PGT team will continue to work with our customers to deliver supply chain cost savings, all while keeping our core partner carriers running and happy.
Team Growth & Office Remodel
The PGT team continues to grow at a very rapid pace and is now over 20+ associates in a little over 2 years. With the tremendous growth we’re experiencing, we’ve decided to remodel part of our 11,000 sq/ft office building to accommodate an additional 30 associates. With the addition of these new associates in accounting, carrier management, administration, and account management we look forward to delivering our customers and carriers unparalleled service.
You’ll see more details about this in several blogs over the next few months! Stay tuned.
As always, we appreciate all of our partnerships and look forward to growing those relationships over time. Our success is a direct result of the incredible people we work with on a daily business, both in the PGT office and outside of it.
Thank you for trusting us! We hope you all have a great holiday weekend. Happy Independence Day!
