A tank truck, gas truck, fuel truck, or tanker truck or tanker, is a motor vehicle designed to carry liquefied loads, dry bulk cargo or gases on roads. The largest such vehicles are similar to railroad tank cars which are also designed to carry liquefied loads.
Imagine yourself in a tanker truck driving down the open road. The wind is touching your hair; you are listening to the truck radio show on “Trucker radio” or “Bandit” and enjoying the freedom! If you can imagine yourself like that, then being a truck driver is the career you should consider.
The trucking industry is a great place to work, especially if you like driving across town or across the nation; anything to not be cooped up in an office. Driving a tanker truck for a living and hauling out on the open road lifestyle might not be for everyone, but it can definitely be a rewarding career.
There are several key points to be aware of when working as a truck driver. Safety is of course one of them. Maintenance of your tanker truck and equipment is a MUST.
