by Canadian Shipper

SEVILLE, Ohio–Panther II Transportation, Inc. has created the Panther Elite Services team to deliver specialized transportation solutions to its customers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Panther II offers expedited truckload and air charter services for the delivery of time-critical freight throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico. It provides on-demand pickup and delivery service and operates around-the-clock throughout the year.

“Panther Elite Services specializes in meeting the needs of customers with demanding service-level requirements and the need to manage complexity,” said Panther II CEO Daniel K. Sokolowski.

As part of its Elite Services offerings, Panther II is introducing validated cold-chain relocation service. This service provides companies with assurance that their loads have been transported under strict temperature control, the company says.

Panther Elite Services special equipment is rigorously tested to ensure that it can sustain constant temperatures ranging from 10 to 80 Fahrenheit.

Panther II ‘s Elite Services offerings include temperature-controlled, air-ride and lift-gate vehicles. The group provides van line rescue and transportation protective services as well as special moving equipment.

Forming the backbone of Panther Elite Services temperature-controlled service offering are thermal-mapped vehicles equipped with thermo-probe temperature recording devices, which provide a printed transit record upon delivery for both tethered and untethered trailers. Additionally, trailers are equipped with door sensors to verify shipment integrity. All trucks are equipped with “panic” buttons, and Elite Services drivers carry remote “panic” buttons to allow them to summon help immediately in case of emergency.

“Panther II has assigned its most experienced staff members to the Elite Services team and has invested in extensive training to guarantee they can handle the most specialized shipments,” Sokolowski said.
