OmniTRAX Partners with Arrows Up to Support Bulk Storage and Transportation Solution Offering
Posted On: October 12, 2016

Investment to build synergies for joint logistics customers 

 DENVER – OmniTRAX Sand Holdings LLC, an affiliate of OmniTRAX, Inc., one of the largest privately held transportation service companies in North America and an affiliate of The Broe Group, is entering into a joint venture with Arrows Up, LLC, a provider of bulk storage and transportation solutions based in Elk Grove Village, Illinois. Terms were not disclosed.

 

 “We see the Arrows Up bulk material storage and transport solutions as a natural extension of our logistics offerings. There is significant market interest and an aligned OmniTRAX commitment to rolling out this solution,” said Kevin Shuba, CEO of OmniTRAX.

 

OmniTRAX is particularly interested in commercializing the Arrows Up Jumbo Bin, which holds up to 25 tons of frac sand or ceramic material, replaces significant storage and transportation infrastructure, creates trucking and rail efficiencies across the supply chain, and eliminates the need for dust suppression equipment. The bins also decrease product shrinkage by reducing the number of product transfers and can be moved by standard transportation equipment enabling customers to control costs. Arrows Up bins can be used for a wide-range of commodities and are easily configured to address the needs of customers shipping a large range of granular commodities.

 

“We are excited to work with the OmniTRAX team as they are a natural partner to help us scale this business across new industries, geographies and commodities. Our collaboration will lead to productivity, safety and cost improvements for our customers and new growth opportunities for both Arrows Up and OmniTRAX,” said John Allegretti, founder and CEO of Arrows Up.
