Ambridge, Pa.-based Beemac Trucking, a company specializing in flatbed transportation, has opened a new terminal in Birmingham, Ala., company officials said.
Beemac Trucking is “very excited to add Megan Gillespie and her team to the Beemac family,’’ Dworakowski said. “Megan’s terminal has seven drivers and she will be adding additional drivers in the coming weeks. Megan’s customer base will complement Beemac’s customer base and create natural synergies.”
The new facility brings to 28 the number of terminals Beemac operates across the nation. With more than 400 trucks, the company provides asset-based trucking, logistics, port, warehousing and specialized hauling services.
Beemac also has an intermodal river-port facility in Leetsdale, Pa.. At that facility the company loads and unloads barges, rail cars and trucks, and also provides indoor and outdoor warehousing services.
Beemac Trucking serves a large portion of the Marcellus Shale region.
“As the industry grows throughout the Tri-State region of Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia, we’re adept at dealing with a large quantity of shale oil and gas steel pipe. We highly value our relationships with companies in the shale oil and gas industry,’’ Dworakowski said.
Beemac uses compressed natural gas (CNG) technology in its fleet, company officials said.
“CNG is cheaper, cleaner and more convenient. Our company purchased 20 CNG trucks with 12-liter engines, and we’re converting some of our current fleet to CNG. Beemac also constructed a CNG refueling station in Beaver County,’’ the company said.
