Tanker Jobs for Highway Transport

Getting Drivers Paid

Highway Transport pays from minute 1 on detention. Our company is one of the few trucking companies who pay from minute one. Highway Transport recently launched a new overhauled pay system and announced driver compensation upgrades. All Highway Transport drivers nationwide at all locations experienced an increase in both hourly and mileage pay.

“All of our staff at all locations are doing great. We’ve got one of the best teams I think we’ve ever had,” says Greg Watkins.

“They are everyday heroes with the deepest commitment to protecting others. Plus, our drivers really shine…literally and figuratively,” says Marshall Franklin, President & CFO of Highway Transport. Our driving fleet is eye-popping. We have one of the shiniest and most well-maintained truck fleets on the road. Our shops are staffed with top mechanics and tank wash professionals.”


Celebrating Drivers

 

“ItCelebrating our Drivers’s not just trucking.” adds Greg Watkins, Highway Transport Vice Chairman “Highway Transport jobs require an understanding of specialty chemicals and tanker trucking.”

Celebrated annually, this year’s National Truck Driver Appreciation Week runs from September 8 through September 14. Throughout National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, Highway Transport drivers enjoy cookouts and gifts at all company locations.

National Tank Truck Carriers

A truck driver’s office is the highway, so our industry has a vested interest in eliminating distracted driving. Federal laws already prohibit truck drivers from texting while driving, and most companies will terminate employees who are caught in violation of this regulation. The trucking world knows the dangers on the road, and we’ve taken steps to fight against them. But the National Tank Truck Carriers (NTTC) organization doesn’t think that’s enough.

Highway Transport wants to help end distracted driving in ALL vehicles.  Commit today that you will drive with Zero Distractions™. Highway Transport encourages everyone to not only take the pledge but download and sign the pledge. After printing and signing, mail your form to NTTC.
