Who We Are

hammel-truckKeystone Dedicated Logistics (KDL) is a non-asset based third party logistics (3PL) company headquartered in Carnegie, PA (Pittsburgh). Our technology, processes, and vast network of customers and carriers alike collectively drive value for stand-alone shippers, powered by our biggest difference maker – KDL employees. Our name has become synonymous with leadership and exceptional service within the industry. KDL is a fourth generation privately held family business operating in the transportation and logistics space, all beginning with Charles L. Hammel founding Hammel’s Express in 1919.

KDL is led by Chairman, Bob Hammel, who previously founded Pitt-Ohio Express with his two brothers in 1979. KDL has assembled a team of highly talented individuals whose professional experience includes LTL trucking, information technology, truckload, parcel, international logistics, manufacturing, warehousing and distribution, and 3PL / lead logistics management.

KDL was established in 1999 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Pitt-Ohio Express. In 2003, KDL was spun off and has since evolved to offer complete logistics management. KDL solutions are geared to complement the services transportation providers perform for the client.
