    Matlack used to brag about hauling a component of NASA rocket fuel from the producer to the cape by team with a scheduled call in every 2 hours. They indicated that Helicopters were launched if the call was late...could be in the tank for only X amount of hours before it became un-stable.

    Remember how they always drained the big fuel tank on the Space Shuttle when they scrubbed a launch, they couldn't leave it in that huge tank and would re-fill it for the next launch window.

    Most reefer companies aren't interested in jumping thru all the hoops necessary for getting a binder full of hazmat permits. Same with most van and flatbed companies. Other turnoffs include the extra insurance and training regimen and the increased potential for failed inspections, not to mention the smaller pool of available drivers who are willing to cruise the nation's highways at 70 miles per hour with 42,000 pounds of flammables or corrosives ominously perched six feet from the base of their skulls.
