quire, Grindstaff maintains that TPXF is still likely to
rely mostly on the energy sector for the bulk of its car-
go. “That has been, for the last five years, the predomi-
nant industry that we serve,” she says. “And I think
that if you consider our location and what the forecast
is for the Permian (the Permian Basin in West Texas is,
today, one of the most important oil and gas producing
areas in the U.S.), energy will probably always be our
predominant commodity.”
Given the vicissitudes and the historical ups and downs
of Texas’ energy industry, Grindstaff still professes to
be “cautiously optimistic” about her company’s future.
“Actually, our first quarter was the best first quarter
we’ve ever had,” she admits. “It set volume records
and at this point, we’re back to the same net volume
of sand cars that we were in 2015. It’s amazing how
quickly things are changing. But good things are hap-
pening. We just sort of sit and smile and try not to brag
too much. . . and hope for the best.”
For the Texas-Pacifico Transportation Company – it’s
all about staying on track.
