We Welcome Pilot to the Olsam Family

and look forward to scaling with them
into 2022 and beyond!
We are excited to announce that we have signed a three-year contract with Pilot Freight Services to manage our entire European warehousing and freight forwarding business. Over the duration of the contract, Pilot will be responsible for managing the shipping of products for all our brands from manufacturers around the world into their 288,000 sq ft warehouse facility in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
They will also manage storage and delivery of these products into Amazon’s Fulfilment Centres around Europe.
“Alexandra Ryan, Director of Business Development at Pilot, said: “Having worked with Peak Coffee (one of Olsam’s portfolio brands) since 2020, we are looking forward to a long-lasting business relationship with the forward thinking Olsam team through handling their logistics supply chain in Europe for their current and future brands. The Pilot team in the Netherlands is super excited and ready for the massive growth Damian is projecting for the years to come!”
“Damian Conroy, Director of Supply Chain at Olsam, added: “After reviewing our supply chain requirements alongside our significant growth ambitions (we expect growth in 2021 alone of 500%), it was critical that we had a logistics service that could support our plans. We want to provide the best possible customer experience by launching new products for our existing brands in new countries and marketplaces, and scaling new brands as we acquire them. To achieve this, we needed a logistics provider that could scale with us. We chose Pilot after a mini tender involving six other parties, and initially it was their track record and location (proximity to the Rotterdam port where all EU shipments from China go through for us) that stood out to us. Since working with Pilot, our relationship with Alexandra, Gilles, and Earl has been exemplary – they are quick to respond, knowledgeable, and nice people.”
“We welcome Pilot to the Olsam family, and look forward to scaling with them into 2022 and beyond!”
