    Might be doing some new work that involves LNG, trailers are multi-canister type 3 or 4's? (not sure exactly) and are pressurized at 3000-4000psi. These would be live loaded, soooooooo how long does it usually take?

    Let me check with my boy who is doing this for KAG right now up in the northeast, but usually LNG and CNG trailers are drop and hook, and the driver has to do nothing

    Thats what I thought too, but the trainings show the driver doing everything. Technically the unload is drop and hook but you are still connecting it to the boiler and such. Looks way more than usual tanker work lol

    Depends on the pressure in the pipeline……..

    the place near me preloads them and then driver takes them to customers.Then the driver makes all connections between the trailer and building. Whatever is left on the first trailer is just taken back.

    The borg took the place away from a local carrier. I’ve never heard that it’s technically or physically hard to do . So I’d believe anyone can do it…

    Usually the shipper loads and driver unloads at the customer depending on the customer.
    I have done propane, really nothing to it.

    Just heard back from my guy that's doing it at KAG... His exact words...

    Loading is easy. Connect hoses, open valves, set the computer.
    Unload, you just connect hoses and open valves.

    What I heard from him, exact words, sounds pretty easy peezy to me.

    Oh yeah only 3000-4000 psi according to what the poster said. Just hook her up and let it rip!! My goodness I hope he gets some training.
