Remote and temporary worksites prevalent in the oil, gas and mining industries present a challenge for housing and feeding workers. The nearest town and accommodations might be hours away by car; often such worksites are fly-in operations. Hostile environments - extreme cold or heat - and inadequate roads and other infrastructure limitations compound the problem of providing adequate food and shelter.
Target Logistics, the largest turnkey workforce housing provider in the US, is a global resource for cost-effective, customized, turnkey accommodations and services. With major offices in Boston, Houston and Williston, North Dakota, Target Logistics provides expert site design, construction, catering, security, housekeeping, transportation, operations and maintenance for temporary workforce lodging, mobile crew camps and extended-stay hotels.

Comfortable, home-style worker accommodation
Superior nutrition, home-style comfort and an array of entertainment and fitness amenities comprise what Target Logistics coined ‘The Economics of Comfort™’. This first-rate level of service results in 1) greater productivity, 2) lower attrition and 3) fewer onsite accidents for Target Logistics clients and their employees. In addition, there’s zero tolerance for alcohol, drugs, firearms, harassment and cohabitation in Target Logistics properties. All this comes from knowing that the most important job we do is to make certain our guests can do theirs.

About Target Logistics
Founded in 1978 and employing about 300 people, Target Logistics embraces a keen sense of corporate citizenship toward the communities and environments (both social and ecological) in which it operates.

Desert Sage Lodge for Arizona copper miners
In November 2012, Target Logistics proudly reopened its Desert Sage Lodge, a 425-bed facility serving the largest operating open-pit copper mine in North America, in Morenci, Arizona. The recommissioning of the lodge comes after a two-year hiatus, during which time Target Logistics had placed the buildings under a strict environmental maintenance regimen that monitored and controlled everything from moisture and ventilation to temperature and dust. As a result, the company was able to reopen the campus to returning miners as if they had never left.
As part of the reopening, every bed in the Lodge features the Hibernator Sleep System. In addition to the comfort of the rooms, the Lodge offers 24hr dining, a recreation room, a fitness center, the Target Market convenience store, free laundry, full-time housekeeping and 24hr security. Although located in one of the most arid and remote regions of North America, the Desert Sage Lodge is a great example of Target Logistics’ ability to provide comfort in even the harshest conditions.
