The explosive growth experienced by the frac sand industry may be leveling off from the historic price-per-ton pricing highs of 2012, but with more than half-million new wells due to be drilled by 2035, the demand for high quality frac sand clearly presents a lucrative opportunity to stakeholders across the supply chain

However crippling transportation logistics costs remain a significant bottleneck, exacerbated by limited rail access, terminals, freight cars and unpredictable user requirements, contributing to substantial demurrage and detention, especially in the last mile.

With this in mind, the Frac Sand Logistics Supply Chain 2013: Rail, Trucking & Transloading Opportunities Congress has been designed to bring together perspectives from across the entire supply chain to identify long term market opportunities and solutions for reducing logistical costs as well as optimizing timely delivery of product.
