On-call logistics experts keep oil and gas companies moving through the downturn

8/21/2020

HOUSTON - Oil and gas companies adapting to new economic realities are finding success by outsourcing logistics support roles that were previously handled by full time, in house teams. Shifting to an on-call structure ensures expert support scaled to the company’s needs, while closely managing costs.

”While shipping volumes may be lower in the current market environment, trade regulations and enforcement are more complex than ever,” said Kirk Hoffman, founder of SGTS Logistics. “Moving assets without a dedicated logistics partner requires learning the intricacies of transnational trade, which takes a team’s time from other tasks and adds layers of cost and risk.”

Unlike a freight forwarder, Strategic Global Trade Solutions represents shippers, delivering master-level shipping and documentation expertise, enabling clients to reduce risk while focusing on their own operations.

“Ensuring a cargo reaches its destination safely and on time is more than just a task on a punch list; a carefully considered logistics strategy is an opportunity to deliver cost savings and operational performance,” Hoffman said. “Taking advantage of a logistics leader makes for value-added results that benefit both the shipper and the client, helping forge strong relationships in challenging market environments.”

Strategic Global Trade Solutions applies nearly 40 years of international trade leadership to meet its clients’ needs in a customized, responsive, and cooperative way with a track record of proven results in logistically challenging industries.

“The new normal of oil and gas means that companies of every size are trying to find ways to accomplish more with less,” Hoffman said. “Making the right choice in a logistics solution can help teams work more efficiently and reduce risk, all while closely aligning with clients’ changing needs.”
