Castrol, one of the world’s leading lubricant brands, has formalized a partnership agreement with Pilot Thomas Logistics who will service Castrol’s workshop customers in the Northeast Region – including Southern New Jersey, Eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland & Washington D.C., enabling the distribution of Castrol ePODS, it’s newest innovation, in the Northeast United States.
Castrol ePODS (efficient Premium Oil Dispensing System) is the first of its kind, a patented solution. Today’s most commonly used oil dispensing systems are messy, inefficient and bulky, which challenges inventory management and clutters shops. Castrol ePODS has a premium look and enables multiple viscosity grades with no cross-contamination in oil changes; adding efficiency and enabling faster oil change times.
“At Castrol, we are continuously looking to innovate beyond oil to help our workshops run better and look more premium, which keeps their customers coming back,” said David Bouet, president of BP Lubricants USA Inc. “With the launch of Castrol ePODS, we’re excited to deliver a more efficient motor oil dispensing system that also adds a premium look for our professional shops.”
“Outstanding customer service is a core Pilot Thomas principle and we are pleased to support this new venture with Castrol in this region,” said Dennis Cassidy, president and CEO of Pilot Thomas Logistics, Inc. “Together, we’re dedicated to exceeding customer expectations by ensuring they receive the highest-quality lubricants, chemicals and fuel whenever and wherever they need it most.”
Pilot Thomas Logistics has more than 70 years of experience in the distribution industry. Operating out of several warehouses in the Northeast, the company brings its expertise to the region as a premier provider of fuel, lubricants and chemicals to the energy, marine, mining and industrial markets.
Pilot Thomas Logistics will provide Castrol workshop customers with access to the full line of high-quality Castrol automotive lubricants and join a network of national distributors focused on providing unparalleled support for workshop customers.
