    I have 2 years OTR experience with vans and reefers. I would like to move into tankers as a company driver. I have family in Houston so I would like to work out of there.
    Any recommendations for good tanker companies there?

    Superior is in Pasadena. A bit of a hike from Houston I know but in the tanker world you’re not going to find much better.

    Ppl always ask what's a good company or who's the best. Well unless you started the place yourself, it wont be the best.

    So if you mean the highest paying company. You dont have enough experience for them. As far as the rest of them. It depends on if your looking for bulk tanker, cryo, fuel, crude, tanker distribution, LPG, food grade, etc.

    There is
    Linden
    Hiway Transport
    Wynne
    Hazmat Environmental Group
    Dana
    Superior Carriers
    Just to name a few bulk carriers

    AIR PRODUCTS
    PRAXAIR
    MESSER GAS
    AIRGAS
    MATHESON
    GEN OX
    LGT
    ARE THE CRYO COMPANIES

    PILOT
    LOVES (Aka Gemini)
    R. E. Steward (Aka Buckeys) he really takes care of his drivers
    Sun coast
    J.A.M. ( they ate always hiring!!!)
    TTE
    Are some fuel hauling outfits

    Sunoco
    Enterprise
    Gemini
    Dupre
    Goldmark
    Run crude oil. This is hard work but some ppl love it.

    Nalco
    Dis tech
    Univar
    Solve chem
    Brenntag
    Are some of the chemical distribution places

    Targa Resorces
    Hercules
    CW propane
    Limarco
    Arena Brothers
    Are some of the LPG haulers
    (TR & Loves has the better pay in LPG right now. But TR is about the senior drivers. And Loves has an inexperienced arsehole for the regional manager.

    You can look into these places. As all of them are hiring. Take your pick some advertise 95k plus. And it makes you wonder why they can't ever fill the listing.

    While others have openings because the pay is low or etc.

    Could list more, but would be better to go on indeed.com and search.

    But correct, what is a good fit for one is bad experience for another....... i once heard someone say Werner was best job out there, and i checked, he was not bleeding from his head. So i guess it was good fit for him
