Our History

The shale revolution was launched when hydraulic fracturing was combined with horizontal drilling in the Barnett Shale. 1845 Oil Field & Commercial Bulk Services was born supporting that innovation and its opportunities. The name 1845 is derived from the proud heritage of our great state of Texas. In that historic year, Texas joined the United States, creating an even more formidable union.

In 2014, 1845 Oil Field Services & Commercial Bulk Services was the result of a merger between three industry-leading companies: D&T Trucking, Rowdy Farms and Gila Hotshot. And just as the union between Texas and the U.S. produced an extraordinary power, the union of these three companies creates the preeminent frac sand transport and logistics company anywhere.

We’re proud of our strong Texas heritage and see opportunities on the road ahead.
