BenchMark Energy Streamlines Shipping, Saves Cost Utilizing Schneider's New Bulk Intermodal Service

BenchMark Energy Corporation

COLDSPRING, Texas, April 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BenchMark Energy Corp. (OTCPink:BMRK), a refiner and supplier of Glycerin for commercial processes, is pleased to have been one of the first to utilize Schneider's new Bulk Intermodal service into Mexico.

BenchMark has been pursuing a reliable, more cost-effective means of transporting product over long distances that would also insure a timely delivery schedule. Although intermodal service has delivered door-to-door transportation at lower costs for decades, it has been almost exclusively in the dry van segment. In 2012, Schneider launched intermodal service for the liquid bulk segment. Today, Schneider's Bulk Intermodal offering provides 'truck-like' service throughout its North American network.

Mark Bateman, CEO of BenchMark stated, "Recently, BenchMark and Schneider completed their first Intermodal shipment to Mexico. Not only was there a cost savings on the transportation, but by eliminating any transload and streamlining the border crossing process, we were able to move the shipment in days instead of weeks. The combination of trucking and rail service has proved to be a very effective solution for our transportation needs."

BenchMark Energy Corp. believes that the addition of Schneider's transportation and logistics expertise will significantly decrease costs, reduce delivery times, and ultimately help BenchMark move their raw and finished products more effectively.
