KAG consolidating fuel units to streamline operations
This is the first step in combining its five KAG Fuels operating companies — Kenan Transport, Advantage Tank Lines, Klemm Tank Lines, Petro Chemical Transport, and KAG West — under one brand.
KAG is one of North America’s largest tank-truck transporters and logistics providers, delivering fuels, specialty products, merchant gases and food products.
“The transition will take time, but will allow us to streamline our operations, better capitalize on our extensive U.S. footprint with more than 4,000 professional drivers and independent contractors, capture best practices of all operating groups and, most important, continue to provide our customers with the first-class service they have come to expect from KAG,” KAG Energy Executive Vice President Jason Platt said in a press release.
KAG Energy is one of the largest transporters of petroleum-based products in the country, annually delivering more than 30 billion gallons of refined petroleum products and renewables to its customers nationwide.
The company says the rebranding to KAG Energy better reflects the service offerings the company provides its diverse and ever-changing customer base. The company has more than 30 different product segments that support the energy services sector of the country to include products such as asphalt, butane, propane, plastics, transmix, and crude oil.
KAG operates through six groups: KAG Energy, KAG Specialty Products, KAG Food Products, KAG Merchant Gas, KAG Canada and KAG Logistics. The company has terminal and satellite locations in 40 states and seven Canadian provinces and territories, with the ability to deliver within all 48 contiguous states, Canada and Mexico, the company said. KAG also provides specialized supply chain logistics services through KAG Logistics.
