DALLAS, Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Andrews Logistics, an asset based transportation and logistics company headquartered in Southlake, Texas, is celebrating its 15th anniversary this month. Founded by Bill Andrews and J. Darron Eschle in 1997, Andrews Logistics was recently named by the Dallas Business Journal as one of the area's 100 fastest-growing privately held companies.
Andrews Logistics has skyrocketed over the past 15 years from a start-up with no revenues to an estimated $50 million in annual sales, and from two to 250 employees. With eleven terminals operating nationwide, 250 trucks and more than 500 tank and dry van trailers now part of its fleet, the company provides services throughout the United States and into Canada and Mexico.
Through the National Tank Truck Association's annual safety contest, Andrews Logistics has consistently been praised as one of the safest tank-truck carriers in the country. It's the youngest company to ever win the Overall Top Safety Award, said Darron Eschle, CEO of Andrews Logistics. It was also recognized with the Sam's Club Truckload Carrier of the Year award in 2009, he added.
"We believe that operating our fleet in the safest manner possible has always been our core strength and the largest contributor to our success," Eschle said. "We've been so fortunate over the last 15 years to work in a community that is not only conducive to, but supportive of our needs and the mission of this industry. It's almost surreal to see what all we've accomplished since 1997."
One of the largest bulk lube oil transportation companies in the country, Andrews Logistics serves several major petrochemical companies nationwide. Its primary offerings include the transportation of bulk liquids to include general chemicals, crude oil, finished lubricants and hazardous materials. Andrews Logistics also provides customized private-fleet replacement and dedicated contract carriage services in the dry van, flatbed and specialized equipment segments.
