Business in Houston, Texas
Innovation-focused Sandbox Logistics, LLC, emphasizes proprietary solutions that span transportation and delivery of proppant associated with the fracking process. Operating within major shale plays nationwide, Sandbox Logistics makes the frac sand supply chain significantly faster through eliminating railcar bottlenecks.
At the same time, the safety and health risks associated with silica dust are minimized through proprietary containers and proppant-to-blender-hopper delivery procedures. Value-added aspects of Sandbox Logistics currently under development include mobile trans-load storage that is flexible and eminently scalable. Specially engineered rail cars provide optimal use of available space and allow seamless forklift loading along the rail line.
Sandbox Logistics maintains U.S. patent certificates in areas ranging from proppant vessel and container design, to its proppant discharge system. The firm has long term relationships with respected suppliers, from the industrial grade belt conveyor manufacturer Cambelt International, to Kenworth heavy haul trucks and tractors. The firm regularly participates in major industry events, from the North American Frac Sand Exhibition & Conference to the DUG Eagle Ford Conference.
