Semi-Truck Tanker Load Logistics Overview
The 9,000 gallon tank is then split into several compartments. This allows the truck to carry multiple grades of fuel and improves the stability of the vehicle. Having one large half-empty tank sloshing around is extremely unsafe compared to one full compartment and one empty compartment.
When making a delivery, the truck can deposit some or all of its fuel load. For a very low-traffic gas station that could be 1,500 gallons from one compartment every few days. For a high-traffic gas station, it could require multiple trucks per day unloading all 9,000 gallons.
