Source and our Last Mile Proppant Supply Chain Optimization Solution were featured in the Daily Oil Bulletin, the most trusted source of exclusive news, data, and analysis for Canada’s oil and gas industry. The article outlines how Source capitalizes on its large storage and throughput capacity, as well as cutting edge technology, to accelerate and optimize the logistics involved in loading and transporting proppant the “last mile” by truck. Here is an excerpt from the article:
You’d think Source Energy Services Ltd., Canada’s largest frac sand provider, would have enough of a logistics challenge transporting its northern white sand about 2,100 kilometres by rail from the three mines it owns in Wisconsin.
But it turns out that, even though the company leases over 2,000 rail cars, which must transport the unique Wisconsin-based sand all that way to terminals it owns inAlberta, in a sector where profit
margins are as thin as some of that sand, it needed to do more to help its customers trim their costs.
And that’s where Source’s last mile proppant supply chain approach enters the picture.
