Liquid Trucking’s History
Founded in 1989, family-owned Liquid Trucking has grown to one of the 30 largest tank trucking companies in the United States. We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality liquid transport services out of the Midwest.
We are headquartered just south of Omaha, Nebraska, with a satellite location slightly west of Sioux City, Iowa.
Where We Deliver
Liquid Trucking delivers coast to coast. Most deliveries are in the central United States with our primary business being agricultural communities in Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, South Dakota, and Missouri. In addition to delivering to the continental US, we have also delivered to Canada.
What We Transport
Liquid Trucking primarily hauls agriculture-based products as well as food-grade and hazmat loads. Two major examples of products we don’t transport are gasoline and dairy.
Farming and Agriculture
Being located in the Midwest, our customer base is predominantly agricultural. We understand the needs and rigors of farm life and strive to serve those who feed our nation. In the springtime, we haul fertilizer to our friends in the field to more than a dozen Midwestern states. Liquid fertilizer has grown in popularity in recent years and is a great option to ensure large and fertile fields. As we have hauled this bulk liquid material, we have learned the benefits of using liquid fertilizers for your farms. It’s an easy and uniform application process, it acts fast, and results in healthier crops.
Food and Kosher
The most common method for food distribution in the United States is trucking. In fact, trucking makes up 70.5 percent of all food transportation. Common liquid food items we haul include:
- Vegetable Oil
- Syrups and Sweeteners
- Sugar Alcohols
- Citrus Products
- Additives and Preservatives
As for kosher food products, they must avoid non-kosher products under all circumstances. This means that the bulk liquid tanks used to transport kosher products could not have previously been used to transport non-kosher products. Also, the tank has to be thoroughly washed inside after every trip. Using freshwater and high-temperature steam are a few examples of how we keep the tanks up to kosher standards. In addition, all of our kosher tanks are certified kosher by a rabbi to adhere to kosher standards and food laws.
Hazmat and Chemical
According to the DOT, hazardous materials are any substances or materials that could adversely affect the safety of the public, handlers, or carriers during transportation. Common materials we haul include:
- Flammable Liquids and Solids
- Oxidizers and Organic Peroxides
- Poison and Infectious Substances
- Corrosive Materials
To be able to transport bulk liquid Hazmat materials, our drivers are specially trained and certified. Not only do they need to know how to safely transport the material, but they also closely watch their routes at all times. In some cases, the materials are time-sensitive, so drivers are willing to adjust their routes to deliver their load safely and on time. Overall to ensure the safety, our drivers inspect their trucks before leaving, are mindful of the liquid surge, and do not engage in unsafe driving behaviors.
