Tanker Truck Driving

What is Tanker driving?

Tanker truck drivers deliver liquid bulk (e.g. water) or dry bulk (e.g. sand) loads, typically in steel tank trailers with hands-on loading and unloading processes with pumps and hoses. The trailer can be designed to haul chemicals and corrosives, or contain multiple compartments, or control product temperature (e.g. Heat in Transit). Schneider features a leading liquid freight base with two-thirds non-hazardous loads, giving you more options.

Schneider Team Tanker Truck Driving Jobs

Team

Even bigger pay potential

Team drivers pair up to rack up more miles and money than they ever could on their own. These positions aren’t always available for Tanker drivers, but when they are, it creates a perfect recipe for earning power. Team drivers earn more than solos, and Tanker drivers earn more than drivers hauling other freight types.

Team Tanker drivers get the ultimate long-haul lanes, drive the newest equipment and enjoy the companionship of another driver/chemist in the seat next to them.

You’ll haul liquid bulk chemicals in a 40-foot tank trailer that can be used on the rail and over-the-road. Since you’ll need to stay near rail hubs, you’ll enjoy greater home time potential and the unique work environment of Intermodal, while still earning the big bucks of Tanker driving.
