July 30, 2021

MCDONOUGH, GEORGIA (July 30, 2021) – The Bennett Family of Companies is pleased to be able to expand its oilfield service capabilities with the new acquisition of American Eagle, a Broussard, Louisiana-based company founded in 2011. Bennett Motor Express, LLC completed the asset purchase of American Eagle following the pandemic and fluctuations in the oil industry demand.

American Eagle, a division of Bennett Motor Express, LLC, is an industry leading full-service provider of expedited logistics, transportation, and brokerage services to 1000+ customers in the oil and gas industry, primarily serving the Gulf Coast region. With terminals positioned throughout the oil patches of Louisiana, Texas, and Oklahoma, American Eagle specializes in the shipping of oil and gas freight throughout North America.

With a strong reputation in the oil and gas industry, American Eagle will be able to expand Bennett’s capabilities in this area. American Eagle’s offices being in Broussard/Lafayette, Louisiana, they are in a unique position to be able to handle off-shore oil rig freight from the Gulf of Mexico as well as on-shore drilling and support equipment in the oilfields of Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma.

American Eagle is currently able to offer a suite of services to customers in the oil and gas industry to include:

“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 customers 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.”

Bennett specializes in other services, including over-dimensional and heavy haul logistics, international freight forwarding and cross-border services from Mexico through their gateway terminal located in Laredo, Texas. American Eagle will now be able to offer these additional capabilities as a division of Bennett Motor Express, LLC.
