Dupré Logistics, LLC – Corporate Overview

Dupré operates from hubs near major metropolitan areas and serves all of the contiguous 48 states and parts of Canada and Mexico.

The nationally recognized logistics provider is rooted in the transportation of oil and gas materials. In the early days of the company, founder Reggie Dupré had difficulty finding a reliable transporter to deliver fuel to his small service station in rural Louisiana. Frustrated with being overlooked by higher-volume haulers and fully prepared to tackle the problem himself, he founded Dupré Transport, LLC, in Lafayette as a specialized hauler of bulk liquid commodities. Dupré began transporting his own product and soon was asked to provide services for other independent retailers.

Over 30 years later, Dupré Logistics has placed itself as a leader in safety, innovation and technological super-user within the industry. The three major business groups recognizable today are Site & Private Fleet Services, Strategic Capacity Services and Energy Distribution Services.

From it’s humble beginnings as a 2-truck fuel carrier, Dupré has grown to be an innovative forward thinker in the industry.
