    rookietrucker......Flex Frac did not get shut down. The DOT had a computer glitch that mistakenly shut down dozens of trucking company's across the country.

    That's just plain fact.

    What name do they have authority under? There is no Flex Frac with DOT authority.

    I work for Flex Frac out of Ft Worth Tx and I am stuck in W Texas with about 30 other drivers. I am hearing they lost their contract with Halliburton? Anybody know whats going on??

    It has been rumored they lost their authority. I find this interesting since I can't find any authority in their name to start with.

    I didn't read the whole thread, so....

    Does any of that frac sand get hauled up here to the northeast specifically the wells in north central PA ??

    I would love to get back to running from up here in the northeast to Texas if any of you guys know of a company that does that..

    All.....flexFrac does not owe Superior Silica Millions. If you knew what you were doing while looking up flexFrac's authority....you would see it is in force. The rumors on this thread are completely wrong. flexFrac didn't loose a Halliburton contract either, resources have just moved west, following a Halliburton crew.

    Pick up the phone and call a flexFrac recruiter.....they are offering $5,000.00 sign on bonuses! They must be doing something right! Check it out.

    If you want to offer some facts it would be useful. Just making blanket statements does not further what appears to be your cause.

    Thanks for the hint on the name for looking up the authority. It is one word not two. I finally found it, it is Flexfrac Logistics, LLC. It appears they are having quite a time with Fatigued Driving (no big surprise in the oilfield) and Vehicle Maintenance (not sure why this is).
