    Hazmat Yanker here. Does SPC have a rider policy for Hazmat/Tanker?

    APU?


    Company Cards? Prepass? Toll pass?

    Detailed pay stub breakdown?

    Average haul?

    Can I live in the truck?

    Single or double bunks?

    Manual or automatic?

    Which trucks?

    Spouses allowed in cab during hometime?

    Slipseat?

    2 months out 4 days in okay?

    Never heard of them, but you could call the company and ask them.

    Will be hard to find a Hazmat tanker company that allows riders. Many plants will not allow you to bring a passengers into their facility.

    No riders

    No APU but idle as much as you want

    Prepass and Ipass

    Lots of pay breakdowns here look around. 60's is easy to reach

    Haul depends on terminal

    Not sure about living in the truck. They do not go home and are parked at terminals for home time. Also small sleepers in company trucks Single bunks

    Moving to autos. Plenty of 10 speeds left

    Macks and Petes. Prostars are being replaced.

    They will let other drivers run loads in your truck in emergencies while on vacation. That can work in your favor if your truck breaks down

    When freight is plentiful they will let you stay out as long as you like. Due to the layover pay schedule they will send you home if it slows down

    I appreciate you taking the time to answer my questions bud. I tried on 5 different phone calls to get this information. Only one actually took the time to speak to me.

    1 out of 5 calls was an after hours man answering questions to the best of his ability. He wanted me to call back during regular hours. I understand that.

    3 out of 5 calls was being asked "When did you want to start". After I said 3m to 1y that I was doing my research early, all 3 took down my information and said someone would call me to answer all my questions. No one called back.

    The last person was a terminal manager. He answered my questions. The conversation was short and although helpful, I realized that Superior wouldn't meet my long term goals.

    Ultimately a rider policy in tanker is what I'm looking for. I was referred to a partner company of theirs that does food grade hauling, unfortunately they don't allow riders either.

    Check with Caledonia Haulers out of Minn. they allow spouse to ride and you can keep truck at home during hometime, they are a foodgrade carrier I was looking at . they seemed like a great Co. but for where I lived they needed me to stay out 14 to 18 days, might work for you though

    You route yourself. Phones with hands free devices only. Basically obey the law with the phone
