Unveiling its plans on Wednesday (18th May), KAG said the move is a first step in combining its five KAG Fuels operating companies under one brand.
KAG’s Fuels companies include Kenan Transport, Advantage Tank Lines, Klemm Tank Lines, Petro Chemical Transport, and KAG West.
Jason Platt, Executive Vice-President of KAG Energy, said, “By creating this entity and combining these subsidiaries into one company, we further strengthen our exceptional services to our customers while making sure we are better unified as ‘one team’ under KAG Energy.”
“The transition will take time, but will allow us to streamline our operations, better capitalise on our extensive US footprint with our 4,000 professional drivers and independent contractors, capture best practices of all operating groups and, most importantly, continue to provide our customers with the first-class service they have come to expect from KAG.”
Platt continued, “Based on our size and geographical presence, we can better utilise our professional drivers and independent contractors in our fleet, which is so important in today’s transportation industry which is experiencing the effects of the nationwide supply chain crisis.”
“We are excited about this change as it better positions us for growth and more accurately reflects the services our valuable team members and contractors are performing.”
