Bluewing Midstream provides terminaling services including bulk storage, blending, heating, and transloading at their terminals at the Port of Brownsville, TX. Bluewing Midstream was founded in July 2015 and is headquartered in Houston, Texas.
Bluewing has utilized Dearman’s terminal automation (TAS.net and UNITY) to efficiently scale from 50k bbls to 2.1mm bbls of storage capacity over the past few years. By leaning on automation, Bluewing actually decreased their administrative labor costs by over $300,000 during this period.
Danny Malone, Bluewing’s VP of Project Management (Operations, Engineering & Construction) had this to say about working with Dearman: “What sets Bluewing apart, according to Malone, is that the company is “probably the most technologically advanced terminal. The majority of terminal space is fully automated,” he states. “That means that the customer, at any given time, can log into a terminal automation system and see on a screen exactly where their product is, what’s been moved, what truck is loaded, and where it’s at in the loading process. All of that works seamlessly. Customers are able to see where their product is from start to finish and they really like that.””
Bluewing has doubled down on technology to better manage orders and give their customers more insight on their product movements.
