Rig Runner Hauls Heavy Equipment and Machinery across the Country

For over a decade, Rig Runner has provided safe and reliable transportation and logistics services to our clients and partners. Our corporate headquarters is located in The Woodlands, Texas, and our service area encompasses all 48 states in the USA.

We operate approximately 522 tractors in 22 terminals throughout the United States. In some terminals we offer crane services, and if we are unable to accommodate your haul we partner with brokerage services to seamlessly coordinate all your logistics and trucking needs.

We haul just about everything from local and regional hot shot services in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Louisiana to hauling commodities, up to 175,000 lbs,, in various industries across the country to disassembling a drilling rig, hauling and reassembling services.
