    Not anymore. They closed it down a couple of years ago. Closest would be Kingsport TN. or Memphis

    Memphis is my home terminal with Swift.

    I tried a little to find their website. Didn't get one. Their pay according to you sounds better than where I am at.

    Hey wsyrob....have been reading your posts from when you first started with SPRC and want to thank you for your efforts on the blog...I am graduating from school this week and have been given the green light to apply to work out of the So Charleston, WV terminal. I have about eight years of class B driving experience, but I know that pulling tankers is a whole new ballgame, so I am really excited for the opportunity....Is the training still the same as you described it your earlier posts or has it changed any? Is Superior on E-Logs or still paper?

    E logs but it doesn't make any difference. They were matching the Qualcom to paper anyway. I find I have more time to run with the e logs than before and get zero form and manner errors. Training should be similar but its all dependent on the trainer and the loads you get. There are no double bunk trucks so you won't be sleeping with another guy in the truck. If you go OTR it will be hotels. I was talking to a S Charleston driver a few weeks ago. His wife is the director of a truck driving school in that area. Can't remember which one. Good luck.

    Everyone interested in being a tanker driver should take the time to read this.
