• Oilfield Heavy Haul Trucking

• Oilfield Hazmat Trucking
• Oilfield Personnel Transport
• Rig Moving
• Oilfield Freight Brokerage Services
• Logistics and Transportation Management
“American Eagle was originally founded with the intent to create a new kind of company; one that is centered on tireless attention to customer service, safety, and the deployment of technology solutions to benefit drivers and streamline supply chains. We are excited about the future of American Eagle, and integrating into a larger organization with additional resources that will allow us to move forward as a leading logistics provider in the oil and gas industry and serve customers at the highest level. With their rich history in the industry and commitment to safety, we feel that Bennett Motor Express, LLC, is a perfect fit for both our clients and personnel,” said Harold Vice, VP of American Eagle.
“The new addition of American Eagle will allow us to expand our efforts in oilfield services substantially. American Eagle has a great deal of experience in the oil and gas industry, and we are excited to have their knowledge and expertise in this area. We look forward to expanding our transportation reach and scope in the industry” said David Lowry, Bennett Motor Express, LLC’s CEO. “With the acquisition, Bennett and American Eagle will provide over 3,500 drivers and owner operators to its customers. We are fortunate to not only be able to increase our fleet capacity, but to gain additional drivers and owner operators with experience in specialized trucking.”
