CASING / TUBING DELIVERIES
Transportation of extremely large or heavy equipment may be challenging. Especially, when its line pipes, tubing, drilling and rig equipment, supplies, drilling fluid, bulky cargo, and similar commodities. It is essential to ensure safe delivery to the destination and precise attention to details. With more wells being drilled in unconventional places and hard-to-reach shale plays, rig locations can be tight or difficult to access. This can create issues when trying to locate trucks to make these deliveries. Our team will communicate with each site in advance to understand the specific delivery requirements of that location. That way, we ensure that the proper equipment is provided.
OVER-SIZED EQUIPMENT DELIVERY
With deadlines and strict schedules weighing on an already complex logistics environment, companies may face difficulties while managing the process of shipping by themselves. PLS Energy Services provides all of the required assistance to enhance your business efficiency and eliminate waste operations and costs. As more drilling sites appear, it may be hard to access rig locations and destinations. Our team will communicate all of the details in advance to figure out all requirements to get your freight moved safely and on time. Whether you are shipping oilfield tools or equipment, valves, drill pipe, or general supplies, no load is too big for our oil and gas shipping service providers.
LINE PIPE DELIVERY – STRINGING
Delivering line pipe to a location can be a very involved and specialized process that often requires attention to detail to ensure that everything runs as safely and efficiently as possible. Our team handles line pipe orders daily that require stringing services. We contract with several partners that can provide tow capable stringing trucks to deliver to ROW as well as stretch equipment to handle Triple Random and Quad Random lengths of a pipe if necessary. Our team is experienced in dealing with stringing contractors and inspectors to ensure that your job goes smoothly from the beginning to the end.

Our Energy Services team always takes the time to learn our customers’ business to provide solutions that will exceed their transportation requirements in hopes of developing a transportation partnership for many years to come.
WAREHOUSING AND STORING
The role of warehouses and storage is often underestimated when it comes to oil and gas logistics. We understand that there is a necessity for specially equipped facilities to keep and process over-sized supplies and hazardous materials, and it is often hard for businesses to maintain warehouses on their own. Thanks to our broad network of storage and inspection facilities, PLS’ Energy Services provides decent management for storing your materials. Our warehousing strategies help eliminate empty space and store the products with maximum efficiency. As for temperature sensitive materials, we offer heat treating facilities as an excellent solution for freight storage.
BARGE SHIPMENTS AND PORT OPERATIONS
Barges and vessels play a significant role in expanding the capacity for moving oil cross-country and beyond. Regardless of how challenging your needs are, PLS Energy Services provide safe and convenient barge shipping. Our reliable carriers and advanced management tools will help make complex transportation seamless. Also, if you need to handle inbound shipments to various ports around the country, we can provide direct discharge services that include picking pipe and other steel products up from vessels located within ports and deliver the products throughout the United States, Mexico, and Canada via truck or rail.
PIPE STORAGE – PROCESSING – INSPECTION
PLS Energy Services can assist you with your pipe storage, processing or inspection needs. Every day, our team works with a large network of storage and inspection facilities, heat treating facilities, coating plants and threading facilities throughout North America.
FREIGHT MANAGEMENT AND VISIBILITY
Apart from operations management, PLS’ Energy Services provides tactical execution, shipment planning, tracking, metrics, and reporting. Apart from the industry experts and professional service, we also offer our advanced transportation management system. It automates and simplifies the execution processes. Visibility into the supply chain is crucial to ensure shipping remains timely and efficient. So our track and trace technology, in tandem with our automated tracking solutions, controls if the right shipment reaches the right destination in demanded time, and constantly keeps you updated.
No matter how complicated your supply chain is, PLS’ Energy Services provide all shipment modes, including Truckload, LTL, Flatbed, and Multimodal. All of these modes can be combined with rail or barge shipping to match your needs. Depending on freight type and route, we can outline the best trans-loading strategy with a maximum result for fewer costs. Although LTL is rarely associated with oil and gas logistics, it can be a beneficial solution for small supply chain needs. LTL can be beneficial for such operations as shipping pumps, drill bits, and other small equipment parts. With our current LTL network, we can provide faster and often cheaper options due to our volume and pervasive carrier network.
