American Chemistry Council approves Houston-based hauler as the newest tank truck carrier in its safety and sustainability program

Houston-based Pulido Transport is the newest tank truck carrier to enter the American Chemistry Council’s safety and sustainability program as a Responsible Care Partner.

Pulido, which also recently renewed its Houston Minority Supplier Development Council (HMSDC) certification, was one of three new Partner companies approved during ACC’s Annual Meeting in May in Colorado Springs, Colorado, along with Blue Water Shipping, a Danish logistics firm, and chemical distributor Univar Solutions.

“ACC is excited to welcome these new member companies and partners,” Chris Jahn, ACC president and CEO, said in a news release. “They join a large group of strong and committed organizations that are dedicated to advancing our industry’s policies and innovating solutions to some of our world’s greatest challenges.

“ACC’s continued growth demonstrates how essential the business of chemistry is to the economy and society by enabling people to live happier, healthier and more prosperous lives, safely and sustainably for generations to come.”

Pulido was founded in 1995 by Joe Pulido, a former truck driver with a passion for the transportation industry. What began as a single owner-operator in Houston has grown to a fleet of tractors and tankers hauling lubricants, waxes, and general chemicals to the lower 48 states, with terminals in Houston and Beaumont, Texas.

HMSDC’s Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) certification indicates a firm has demonstrated that it’s owned by a minority group member who is a United States citizen of Asian, Black, Hispanic, or Native American descent. Pulido has been an active member of HMSDC since 2016 and the recertification further solidifies its commitment to fostering equitable opportunities and connecting with new customers.

“As an HMSDC member, we are thankful for the partnership which has allowed us to develop as a team and grow our business,” said Alex Suescun, Pulido CFO.
