In 1994 after various management positions with LTL carriers, Greg and Tim Piper started their Same Day Delivery Inc. with the encouragement and financial support of a key customer contact.
What began as a one truck, two-man operation has been blessed with substantial growth. At the request of a number of customers we have expanded our business to include a Truckload Division, Local Cartage, Nationwide Brokerage, and a Distribution Warehouse.
Piper Logistics began as a DBA in 1996. In early 2002, volume in the warehouse and brokerage sectors necessitated evolving Piper Logistics Inc. into a separate company.
Same Day Delivery Inc. now provides furniture delivery, local cartage, and interstate truckload and LTL service specializing in the Indianapolis to Chicago market.
Now named The Piper Group, Piper Logistics is a premier warehouse distribution service with a local, National, and International customer base. The brokerage division provides nationwide transportation services.
All divisions in both companies enjoy a growing and increasingly loyal customer base with each division benefiting from reciprocal business making us a full service transportation logistics provider.
Piper Warehouse 24 hour staffed operation is maintained and monitored by Korsen Fire Safety and Security systems. Our employee fob access and in-house camera surveillance systems allow us to monitor and track warehouse entry and activity. Drivers are not allowed inside our warehouse.
The Piper warehouse technical staff persistently re-engineers each warehouse team member environment to simplify complex operations. Every warehouse workstation plays host to multiple virtual machines ensuring separation of each customers’ data and their particular security demands. This reduces the number of workstations required to operate and uniformly reduces our carbon footprint. The Piper warehouse management teams currently operate nearly a dozen of our customers systems in this environment. We also have the capacity to locally build MPLS according to the customers’ guidelines. We are versed with SAP Warehouse Management, CIMS (cloud inventory management) and a host of hybrid WMS systems including our in-house custom built WMS.
The Piper warehousing and transportation teams’ stand as a united front ready to solve our customers’ complex logistics issues.
