Transportation plays a critical role in the economics of oil and gas development, and vice versa. The need to ship Shale Gas creates a high demand for motor freight.
Today, many oil and gas industry suppliers lean heavily on the same set of core carriers. For obvious reasons, shippers trust carriers that have been reliable in the past. However, as the industry grows into new geographic regions, this strategy leaves companies short on capacity in an already historic year of capacity shortages.
This is where freight brokers can provide assistance. Transportation requirements in the oil and gas industry can be unique and complex. Stricter safety standards and the need for specialized equipment limit the number of qualified carriers, making it harder for suppliers to quickly and economically get freight to project sites.
