By Eco-Energy | July 16, 2019

Eco-Energy, a leading biofuel supply chain company, announces the formation and launch of its ethanol logistics service. This service will extend Eco’s logistics management capabilities to a broader mix of ethanol buyers and shippers, providing participants with improved visibility and control over their ethanol supply chain performance. The platform technology is centralized on real-time data capture, monitoring, and reporting to provide participants with the information and resources they need to extract the most value from their supply chain. The service, which is initially focused on truck transport, will begin operations with $25 million-plus of annual freight under management. In association with the logistics service, Eco has partnered with Eagle Transport as the preferred truck carrier for the business. In conjunction with this partnership, Eagle will assume certain truck operations currently within Eco-Energy Transportation. This combined platform establishes the largest, asset-backed logistics management service exclusively focused on ethanol.

“Eco is excited to use our expertise and market position to bring an industry leading solution that will enable greater visibility and control across the ethanol supply chain. We recognize a real need to resolve current gaps in ethanol logistics management, as well as proactively address the future constraints we anticipate in this space. We believe our strategic partnership with Eagle ensures our logistics service has a strong asset backing by a leader in the motor fuels transport space,” stated David Maggied, Eco-Energy’s vice president of Transportation.

Lance Collette, Eagle Transport’s president commented, “we are excited to establish a strategic partnership with Eco-Energy. We believe Eco’s Ethanol Logistic Service platform launch is compelling and unique; we are proud to be their leading tank truck carrier for this service. With this venture, Eagle expands our terminal footprint and leverages our southeastern presence to attain an increased level of value-based services to the ethanol and petroleum markets.”
