There is a High Demand For All Types of Trucking Services In The Bakken Region
The transportation of Aggregate is the second largest portion of Luminart’s business. Aggregate is transported 100% by truck and trailer. The building sites purchase aggregate from the closest mine to minimize the expense of trucks and drivers. In addition to aggregate hauling, Luminart is exploring the opportunities in oil and water hauling. The long term distribution of crude oil is generally by pipeline or rail cars, while the short interstate hauls are by truck. Much of an oil tanker utilization is in transporting the oil from the oil well to the transfer site for pipeline or rail cars.
The hauling of water involves transporting of the water mixture used in the fracking process, then removal of the waste water for disposal into a waste water site.
Luminart currently has over 40 tractor trucks and trailers in its managed fleet. Much of the contract requirements call for the product to be delivered to the construction site. These deliveries are generally billed at an hourly rate for the truck and trailer, or for a price per delivered ton.
B3 takes as much of this work as possible, with the balance being sub-contracted out to independent truckers. B3 could effectively run 50 trucks, given the correct acquisition costs of the equipment.
