Success StoryDoing things the right way with great people.
U.S. Oil’s North Houston terminal operations were able to remain open as Hurricane Laura made landfall allowing the team to continue fulfilling fuel orders while all other nearby terminals were closing down. With safety at the forefront, the team worked together to solve logistical questions, fill fuel orders and meet new customers to make a difference in many of the hard hit communities. Fuel supplied during this time allows emergency personnel, first responders, and hospitals to remain open and is often the only source of fuel for these critical community personnel.“The day after the storm, Prime Transports filled up and headed to Lake Charles,” said James Guthery, Manager of Terminal Operations, U.S. Oil Houston. “They said they would ‘do whatever it takes to get there and help those in need.’ It’s not just the gas stations that need fuel during a hurricane. It’s the first responders, the hospitals, emergency personnel. That night, when I was watching the Weather Channel, there they were in the background. They made it to Lake Charles. The story came full circle and it was very rewarding to see them make it there safely and help such a devastated area.”
