Tanker truck driving jobs

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’s leading liquid freight base consists of 75% non-hazardous loads. Discover what kind of tanker loads are available in your area today.
