As part of LSPI’s strategy to be both the supplier of choice for drag reducing agent (DRA) solutions, and the employer of choice for all our employees, our latest decision to locate a regional warehouse facility in the midwest region achieved both goals. We are continually evaluating delivery strategies that will optimize the efficiency and timeliness with which we meet customer needs for DRA.
As we analyzed customer demand in the mid-continent area of the U.S., we determined that a new location in the midwest region would add substantial flexibility to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers. At the same time, these shorter regional routes provide a benefit to our private fleet employees in that they are away from home fewer days during the week. In short, this new regional warehouse is a win-win for both LSPI and our customers. The warehouse opened in late 2017 and is fully operational today.
