CRU Victoria Investments, L.L.C. was created as a solution to the logistics and transloading issues that have plagued the Eagle Ford since 2009.


At the time 10-hour loadouts, rail embargoes, high demurrage invoices, and job shutdowns were commonplace due to the quick rise in frac sand volumes. It was then that we, at CRU, decided to devise a model that would help alleviate the headaches. Using our expertise in high-volume logistics and transloading for other oil field commodities, we have developed an efficient supply chain solution for the industry. From the designing of the track and building of the terminal to operating it, our niche is in solving your supply chain needs.
