Liquid Tank Trailer Trends

The transportation of bulk goods, including liquid resources like petroleum, relies on well-refined technology and highly specialized vehicles. Liquid tank trailers are an important part of the trucking industry because significant portions of them haul fuel around the country. The global increase in petroleum production supports the manufacturing of liquid tank trailers both domestically and internationally. The increase in oil and gas exploration supports ongoing research and development in the trucking industry despite government legislation and environmental concerns. The overall industry is moving toward transporting liquid goods, like petroleum, in ways that are fuel-efficient.

Contracted Transportation

Due to the high specialization and strict requirements on the liquid tank industry, businesses are moving toward contracting specific individuals or companies for transportation of liquid goods. The transportation of petroleum requires highly qualified and skilled drivers to ensure access and safety across the country. The trucking industry, which has been cited as a very low margin business, has high costs associated with the equipment that is necessary to transport goods. Tank trucks are for specific purposes since you cannot put any item in any carrier. The industry trend is moving toward established contractors with ongoing on reliable relationships.

Increase Fuel Efficiency

Liquid goods often travel long distances in order to put people into contact with the goods that they need. The industry is looking at how to cut costs by increasing the fuel efficiency of liquid tank trailers. Researchers are looking at ways to lighten the load of each carrier, which often comes in the form of structural advancements. The advancements all look at reducing wind resistance and shedding weight from each vehicle. In addition, tankers also experience a significant amount of wear and tear from everyday use. The industry is looking at how to prevent against everyday damage in order to increase the lifespan of each tanker.


The highly specialized nature of truck driving makes it difficult to recruit new drivers who are interested in a long-term investment in the industry. The industry is currently experiencing a shortage of qualified liquid tank trailer technicians and mechanics. In addition, the industry believes that social determinants, like the hazardous chemicals carried by tankers, are deterring drivers. There are now separate fees associate with driving hazardous materials, due to stipulations by the United States of America. The credentialing process has created a barrier to recruiting new drivers into the industry.

Contracted transportation, increased fuel efficiency, and more active recruitment are all top priorities for the liquid tank trucking industry. As business continues to grow due to the need to transport petroleum and other chemicals, the government has continued to increase safety and security measures. The industry continues to support the overall health of the economy while attempting to adapt to the changing regulations and marketplace.
