About American Eagle

U.S. Energy Exploration and Production
Transportation Services

American Eagle was founded in August 2011, when four managing partners with deep expertise in the oil & gas transportation/logistics services sector decided to branch out on their own to create a new kind of company, one that centered on tireless attention to customer service, safety, and the deployment of technology solutions to benefit drivers and streamline supply chains. In subsequent months and years, American Eagle grew rapidly on the backs of their hand-selected team in their headquarters office in Broussard, Louisiana, and their fast-growing terminal network in the oil patches of Texas and Oklahoma. Watch our introduction video for more on our story and the smart logistics solutions we provide to our customers.
