Hiring for Local Tanker Positions

Solar Transport was founded in 1963 by W. A. Krause and Tony Gentle in Hampton, Iowa. Starting with one truck our founders had a single purpose: to be the best in the business. Today Solar Transport upholds that tradition of working every day to be the very best it can be. The company grew organically from the single truck to a fleet of fourteen trucks by 1990. Solar Transport currently serves some of the largest convenience store chains in the nation from 27 terminals, with regional offices in Iowa, Colorado, California, and Missouri.
