Pay Increases and Technology

The pay increase follows the recent introduction of new technology aimed at to create efficiencies for professional tanker truck drivers:
PeopleNet – the new fleet system that drivers have in the cab. This runs off of a tablet and minimizes data entry and automates workflow and tracking.
TempTrack – the new solar-powered location and temperature monitoring system, provides real-time updates to drivers and customers.TempTrack by Highway Transport




• The redesigned driver app gives drivers around-the-clock access to key information, including logs, employee documents and pay information.
