The shale revolution was launched when hydraulic fracturing was combined with horizontal drilling in the Barnett Shale. 1845 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 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.

In 2016, 1845 started its commercial bulk services division to service industrial commercial customers raw material needs throughout the lower 48 states. With our knowledge and experience in the bulk industry, we can provide top notch transport service and logistics anywhere in the country.

1845 provides first-rate service to raw material suppliers and to the manufacturing plants that need it. If you need it, we’ll haul it, safely and efficiently with the communication and attention you deserve.

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

We believe we have created a company with culture and opportunities like no other.
