Pilot Freight opens new headquarters near Delaware line


Pilot Freight Services has moved into new global headquarters at 2 Braxton Way in Glen Mills, PA.

The building is about five miles north of the Delaware border. The privately held company has annual sales of about $800 million.

The new space, with 45,000 sq. ft. over one and a half floors, consolidates three separate divisions that were previously housed in three buildings that included a former schoolhouse.

A released stated that the “new dynamic office is a purposeful reflection of Pilot’s solution-based, progressive and collaborative culture as a leading technology-forward transportation company.”

Designed in partnership with Philadelphia-based, Formcraft, the open floorplan eliminates barriers and actively encourages collaboration and decision making where team members can share experiences and insights in a variety of gathering spaces, the release noted.

Pilot’s new office is outfitted with more than ten conference rooms, huddle rooms, and alternative meeting spaces including acoustical booths in open areas enabling teams to gather.

Pilot also has large scale audio and video conferencing capabilities to encourage collaboration between stations in the U.S. and internationally.

Pumped in pink noise provides privacy for conversations without disturbing team members.

“Glass-fronted meeting rooms and offices not only usher in natural light but are a tangible reflection of Pilot’s commitment to transparency to both client and employees. Touchpads outside each conference and meeting room are an example of the technology integrated into everyday activities, enabling staff to easily reserve the space and view availability,” the release stated.

Pilot is an air freight company that had previously been located in Middletown, PA. The Glen Mills site allowed the company to remain in Delaware County, PA.
