Combined footprint will significantly expand coverage area and increase customer value
Salt Lake City, Utah, June 1, 2017—Western Peaks Logistics (WPL) and PTC Air Freight, both based in Salt Lake City, are joining forces to expand and enhance their coverage of the western United States in providing customized freight-forwarding, delivery, and logistics solutions.
WPL is the premier same-day/next-day and last-mile delivery and logistics provider serving Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, Idaho, and surrounding areas. WPL’s current customers include several of the country’s most recognized brands in national retail, express shipping, bulk mail, laboratory companies, and pharmaceutical wholesalers.
PTC has been recognized for more than 40 years as the standard of excellence in specialty distribution and expedited freight handling services along the Wasatch Front. The company also considers its highly experienced staff and sophisticated technology to track deliveries and communicate with customers to be competitive advantages.
“By partnering with WPL, we will significantly expand our reach and our resources while continuing to provide the high levels of customer service to which PTC customers have become accustomed,” said Dennis Gardner, president of PTC. “With benefits like access to a new and larger warehouse and a significantly expanded service area, this partnership will enable us to be even more responsive to our customers’ needs in a more cost-effective way.”
Both companies offer same-day delivery service, parcel and freight, warehousing and fulfillment, dedicated fleets, and white-glove home delivery and assembly service. WPL customers will particularly benefit from PTC’s extensive experience in the freight-forwarding business, as well as PTC’s packaging, palletizing, and hot shot service offerings.
“Adding PTC to the WPL portfolio significantly enhances our ability to serve the freight-forwarding industry,” said WPL CEO Tyler Thatcher. “Combining the managerial expertise and services of these two great businesses will enable us to offer a compelling solution for shippers that are servicing customers in the Rocky Mountain West.”
