Lake Truck Lines – Corporate Overview

From Lakes beginnings in Houston in 1949 with four trucks to over 100 units at 8 locations in 2 states the company has always sought to challenge competitors, economic conditions, conventional thinking but mostly itself. By always asking itself ‘What’s the Next Step?’ Lake is always able to come up with new and innovative ways to learn about and serve the clients up and coming unmet needs.

Lakes expansion into the Eagle Ford and Permian Basin oilfields just 30 months ago are what brought Lake into the forefront of the oilfield logistics industry. Lake provides dedicated or first call transportation service to three of the four largest oilfield service companies in the world. By specializing in just two vital areas of the drilling process, drilling fluids and cementing, Lake is the recognized expert in the field.

But Douglas Cain is never one to be satisfied with his present success. It has been said that Mr. Cain looks two mountains over to determine his next goal. With the development of Lake Oilfield Services and its Lake Transloading and Lake Manufacturing Divisions, Lake has been able to engineer, design, build and market the vital equipment needed for its oilfield clients
