EZ Ops, a Canadian leader in oil and gas operations technology, has acquired two premier transportation and logistics companies: PAYLOAD Technologies, a cloud-based solution to digitize field tickets and regulatory manifests, and Drift Technological Solutions, a specialist in logistics optimization for efficient fluid management and truck routing. The combined entity brings together world-class data insight and activity scheduling to help oil and gas businesses optimally produce, maintain, transport and manage compliance of their assets.
“Our customers today must deliver economical production, responsible compliance, and keep frontline workers safe even as the labour supply diminishes,” said Brandon Ambrose, CEO and Founder of EZ Ops. “We see an opportunity for oil and gas operations to rise to these demands by taking advantage of all the data available and applying AI. With the acquisitions of Drift and PAYLOAD, we are going beyond optimizing field operations, to optimize truck ticketing and transport logistics ensuring that the action workers need to take are clear to help our customers operate most efficiently and responsibly.”
