Frac Sand Division Sub-Leased Carriers
Creek’s Sub-Leased Carriers are highly vetted. Carriers are required to carry and maintain a minimum coverage of $2 million commercial general liability, $2 million auto liability, $100,000 cargo and a $40,000 trailer interchange. We have oversight of all carrier’s DOT Compliance, Tero Compliance and West Segment Compliance, etc. Creek’s safety team does random inspections on sub-leased trucks and drivers as if they were our own company owned trucks. They are checked for DOT & Safety compliance, including PPE, JSA, DVIR etc. There is no differentiation between company owned trucks and drivers and subleased trucks and drivers. We dispatch and manage them all, insisting on a high level of service 24/7.
All drivers, company or sub-leased are required to complete a full driver’s orientation and safety course. In addition, we facilitate all certifications such as PEC, Fit Test, H2S, and any additional certifications that may be required by the service companies. Only vetted and orientated drivers can drive for Creek, a carrier is never allowed to operate a driver without being trained, the driver must have credentials with our dispatch unit, or they will not be given a load to haul.
