By no means bound by the borders of Texas, Lone Star Transportation hauls freight throughout North America on flatbed trailers. The company specializes in transporting equipment and heavy and complex loads by flatbed trailers for customers in industries such as aerospace, construction, and oil and gas. It operates a fleet of about 800 tractors (325 company owned and over 475 owner-operator) and 2,000 trailers. In addition to freight transportation, Lone Star provides a variety of logistics services, which include arranging the transportation of customers' freight by air, ocean, and rail carriers. Company president Tex Robbins owns Lone Star, which began operations in 1988.
The company has recently taken advantage of a growing interest in renewable energy. It was reported in 2010 that about 20% of Lone Star's revenue comes from moving large turbine towers and blades to remote wind farms. – less
