Savage has 70 years of experience in logistics. Savage – a privately held company with more than 3,000 team members in over 200 operating locations – will operate the Vancouver Energy terminal. Savage has extensive experience operating terminals and working in other industrial facilities, and has been recognized by industry groups for its safety record.

Savage and Tesoro’s rail team have successfully teamed together to safely operate another rail transloading operation in Washington State.  The Crude Railcar Offloading Facility (CROF) associated with Tesoro’s refinery in Anacortes has offloaded 1,000 trains and provided the Anacortes Refinery with approximately 68,000,000 bbls of oil without any reportable incidents.
