What We Do

Introduction

KC Sand and Transport has been involved in the Montana and North Dakota oilfields since 2007.  The company was started with two motivated men and one truck. Through hard work, determination and a dedicated “hands on” approach, these two men transformed their one truck and hard work into one of the larger fracturing sand transportation and storage companies in the Montana-North Dakota oilfields.

With up to 35 company trucks and pneumatic trailers, 100 employees, KC strives to bring their customers an unsurpassed amount of professional service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Co-owners Keltz Hall and Cole Wirth have thorough experience in multiple facets of the oilfield business.  From explorations to production, these two entrepreneurs have been employed in the Montana-Dakota oilfields since 1991. They have combined their knowledge of the trade to create a competitive transportation and storage company which is capable of handling the needs of the premier service companies in the Bakken region and beyond.

Management expertise

Multifaceted transportation providing up to 20-35 company-owned field ready truck-trailer combinations , KC provides service support personnel whom are available 24/7. For customer convenience, KC offers experienced truck pushers who are available to answer any questions or resolve any customer concerns at any time.

KC runs its own full service shop and service trucks to maintain and service all equipment, with the main focus to meet and surpass all DOT regulations.

KC also offers transportation services for any product transferable via flatbed trailer, belly dump or pneumatic.

Working hard to retain its Satisfactory Compliance Score, KC requires all operators pass a thorough background review. They must meet all legal and company stipulations before allowed to go to any location.

Safety and Compliance

Safety and Compliance is one of KC’s highest priorities. KC Transport employs a compliance officer to monitor and work at improving our company’s compliance with Federal Motor Carriers Safety Association Regulations. KC’s compliance officer works closely and maintains good communication with local & state FMCSA agents for clarification of Rules & Regulations on a regular basis.

KC’s compliance officer and truck coordinators have worked diligently with the company drivers to further educate them to safety & regulations. All newly employed company drivers meet with the compliance officer initially for education related to FMCSA safety and regulations, RODs, hours of service, bill of ladings and company driver policies. KC Transport also holds company driver meetings regularly where additional education is provided.

It has become evident through the course of this endeavor that safety is an ongoing process that needs to be practiced each and every day by all employees of KC Transport. Safety throughout our organization continues to remain one of our “highest priorities”. We at KC take pride in being able to offer a satisfactory compliance rating.

Personnel

With three separate properties owned by KC and over 100 employees, it takes a diverse team to efficiently manage all aspects of KC’s day to day operations.  Safety is a top priority; KC provides professional training for all employees before they enter their designated fields. Once trained, to re insure the proper knowledge of the employee’s duties and for safety, all employees complete further training in their designated work field with an experienced supervisor. As a pioneer in the Bakken, KC was one of the first to place sand coordinators on location and provide this type of customer service in the Bakken.  KC’s experienced truck coordinators assist on location with all duties including, but not limited to; managing trucks into designated unloading areas, ordering the necessary number of trucks and loads of sand to efficiently complete the frac, cutting down on unnecessary standby (detention time), acting as a professional liaison between the service company and KC to insure proper communication and avoid any unnecessary issues.

Dispatch

KC’s Dispatch is a valuable asset and major contributor to the success of KC Sand and Transport. Available 24/7, dispatch provides the necessary communication between all personnel required in the transportation of all products. All directions, commodity needs, and special instructions are processed and distributed to drivers through our dispatchers. Operating on our custom sand tracking software, dispatch has control in tracking all loads from our facilities and the ability to alter loads, if needs arise. KC dispatch can provide up to the minute changes and sand totals to the data personnel on location and operations when requested.

Rail Management

A location with rail access is a precious commodity in any oilfield. KC has prime locations, with track access in Montana and Wyoming.

Logistics Coordinators track all incoming products and carefully oversees all product inventories.  With up to 40,000 tons of sand product going through KC’s facility in a month, product tracking is a necessity. Available 24/7, the Logistics Coordinator is able to provide real time accurate inventory updates and tracking progress in real time.

Service areas outside the Bakken

Casper, Wright, and Upton, Wyoming oilfields.  While loading and transporting for a multitude of customers from KC’s yards, KC utilized its relationship with multiple regional sands sources to ship cars closer to well locations. In 2013 KC acquired rail in WY to ensure efficient placement and cut down on unneeded expenses for the production companies and all parties involved and now in 2016 we are looking at more growth.
