Oil and Gas

Upstream, midstream or downstream, your oil and gas supply chain will perform more efficiently.

XPO Logistics has the expertise and global reach to satisfy the unique requirements of clients in the oil and gas industry. We can help you achieve your goals by transforming your supply chain network to reduce complexity and costs, and improve service levels. This allows you to focus on your core competencies while remaining in control of your supply chain operations.

A high-performing supply chain may seem out of reach to you – but that’s not the case. Whether your needs are upstream, midstream or downstream, XPO can solve the challenges of remote work environments and local supplier management. Our Lean methodologies and deep understanding of the oil and gas sector can elevate the productivity of your supply chain and set a pace of continuous improvement.

In addition, we understand that you need to standardize safety and regulatory compliance across the array of service providers you use. We have direct experience driving compliance by establishing baselines, regularly engaging carriers and other service providers, and developing customer and site-specific safety programs. This approach allows us to engineer processes that are custom-tailored to your needs, while eliminating waste throughout your supply chain.
