Quality Carriers expands Houston TX presence

March 24, 2014

Quality Carriers, Inc, a leading North American bulk chemical carrier, has expanded its operations in the Houston TX market.

The additional capacity comes from Gulf Coast Express Carriers, a Quality Carriers affiliate based in Luling LA. "As an independent affiliate of Quality Carriers, my team wanted to expand our I-10 corridor presence,” says Robert Warner, chief executive officer, Gulf Coast Express. With terminals in Louisiana and Alabama, opening in Houston gives us significant density in this core chemical market.”

Randy Strutz, president of Quality Carriers, adds: "The natural gas revolution in North America is dramatically impacting the domestic petrochemical industry. Our customers continue to expand in the Gulf region and have asked us to bring more capacity to the heart of this exciting market. Last year, we added two new Houston area terminals in Pasadena and La Porte, to complement our Channelview facility. We are now adding a fourth area terminal, located in Houston. We are excited to continue our expansion to meet the growing needs of our customers.

"This is just another step in our efforts to expand our North American footprint to better service our North American customers and continue to improve Quality Carriers as a great destination for drivers. We highlighted our expansion plans at our February 27 Investor Day and plan to continue to share news as more locations come on-line."
