As a Logistics or Procurement Director or Manager, when considering a freight forwarder for your organization’s heavy industrial cargo shipping needs, several factors come into play.
One of the most important is the location of the freight forwarding company. DTS World Cargo, a licensed freight forwarder and global shipping specialist company, has its main operations located in the Port of Houston, Texas.
In this article, we will discuss why this location is crucial for the oil and gas logistics industry and how it can benefit your organization’s supply chain.
Proximity to Major Oil and Gas Producers
According to Forbes, the United States is now the world’s largest producer of crude oil and natural gas liquids. Texas alone produces more than 5 million barrels of crude oil a day, which is nearly 40% of the country’s total output. The Port of Houston is strategically located in the heart of the world’s largest oil and gas producing region, making it a prime location for transporting heavy cargo of this type. Martha Mendez, CEO of DTS World Cargo, explains, “Our location in the Port of Houston puts us at the center of the action. We are just a stone’s throw away from major oil and gas producers, giving us a unique advantage in this industry.”
Expertise in Oil and Gas Logistics
Transporting heavy oil and gas cargo can be a complex and challenging process. According to Logistics Management, oil and gas logistics require specialized knowledge of customs regulations, permits, and dangerous goods handling. DTS World Cargo has years of experience in handling complex oil and gas shipments and can provide tailored solutions to meet your specific needs. Mendez adds, “We have a team of experts who understand the nuances of this industry. We can help you navigate the complexities of customs clearance, permits, and regulations, ensuring your cargo is delivered on time, every time.”
What’s the Difference Between a Freight Forwarder and a Logistics Operator?
Infrastructure and Facilities
The Port of Houston is home to state-of-the-art facilities and infrastructure, including deep-water channels, rail connections, and trucking lanes, making it an ideal location for transporting heavy cargo. According to a report by Business Insider, the Port of Houston is the largest port in the Gulf of Mexico, handling more than 250 million tons of cargo each year. The port’s infrastructure is constantly being upgraded, making it one of the most efficient and technologically advanced ports in the world. DTS World Cargo takes advantage of this infrastructure and utilizes the latest technology to streamline the shipping process and provide real-time tracking of your cargo.
Access to International Markets
In today’s global economy, access to international markets is critical for the success of any organization. The Port of Houston is one of the busiest ports in the world, with connections to over 200 ports in more than 100 countries. This gives you access to a global network of suppliers and customers. As Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon, once said, “Your brand is what other people say about you when you’re not in the room.” By partnering with DTS World Cargo, you can expand your organization’s reach and reputation by reaching international markets.
