What Tanker Trucks Typically Carry

Tanker trucks are large trucks that either carry or pull trailers capable of handling various liquid, dry bulk or gaseous loads. These vehicles are typically categorized as heavy, medium, or light-duty types based on their load-carrying capacities. Tanker trucks can carry more than one load, making them even more dangerous in the event of an accident.

When a truck carries more than one load, dissimilar loads can be divided within a single container enclosure, or loads can be mixed by piggybacking multiple trailers. With the exception of light-duty tankers, such as water dispersion tankers, drivers typically carry Class B or C commercial licenses in addition to various bulk goods, fuels or hazmat endorsements.

A collision with a tanker truck can be very serious due to the size and weight of the truck and the nature of its load.
