Through a full range of proprietary oil field solutions, Sandbox Logistics facilitates the cleaner, more efficient transport and delivery of proppant from fracking operations. This has resulted in partnerships with major energy corporations. Houston-based Halliburton recently announced the selection of Sandbox Logistics as its containerized sand delivery preferred provider.
The president of Halliburton described this move as reflecting a mandate for more efficient logistics capacities within its supply chain, with an emphasis on the “last-mile component.” The new delivery system will decrease costs through better operating efficiencies and also create a work environment that is safer and more secure.
The president and CEO of U.S. Silica, which owns Sandbox Logistics, described the link-up with Halliburton as reflecting his firm’s emergence as an industry-leading provider of last-mile services designed to enhance client operations. Once implemented, the system will enable Halliburton to “flex quickly” with both markets and customers, in ways that optimize logistical asset values.
