I'm looking to find a high quality tanker outfit somewhere in the NW USA. I prefer not to be anywhere near the coast. I am open for anywhere from the Cascades over to North Dakota and from the Canadian border to northern Arizona.
My dream job would be hauling HazMat or fuel from the middle of nowhere to the middle of nowhere. I am open to food-grade, but have no knowledge or experience in it.
I am already working in the area but I'm kept so busy I have little time to research companies. I have 3 years recent experience hauling HazMat liquid tankers. I have the endorsements plus TWIC, passport. My record is clean.
If you could work for any company which one would you consider as one of the very top of the industry. I need to find a place where I can work for 5-15 years. Which companies should I look at first?
I was hoping L.W. Miller of Logan, UT would be the place, but it looks like their tanker work is based in North Salt Lake City, UT. I moved out west to avoid big dog-eat-dog cities like SLC. Salt Lake City is just Atlanta with more pickups and roof-racks. In case of a tie I prefer cold locations.
What are the high quality tanker companies in the Northwest USA?

Look into hauling bulk cryogenics. Liquid Oxygen, Nitrogen, CO2. It’s probably the cleanest hazmat tanker work there is. The tanks are baffled Mostly daycab work. Layovers are in decent hotels. Very highly compensated. Your experience would be highly sought.
Key in Cryogenics in the “Truckers Report” search line.
In my HUMBLE opinion it’s top tier “company” trucking
You might also consider crude oil gathering in the Bakken or DJ basins.
I asked him last year to send in a picture of himself so none of us will forget what he looks like. He's been here over twenty years and you couldn't blast him off that tanker with dynamite.
