“I went directly to tanker driving because I wanted to do something different. I see it as a deeper level of truck driver. It’s specialized, and not everyone can drive a tanker.”

Reasons to be a Tanker owner-operator or fleet owner at Schneider

  • Tanker Choice + top-notch tech

    The pick-your-freight model for Tankers

    Schneider’s Van Choice program has been popular with dry van owner-operators for years, and Tanker Choice is proving just as popular since launching in late 2016. By picking your own loads, routes and revenue, you get total control of your business and bottom line. Schneider's robust Tanker freight base has grown year over year, giving smart business owner-operators even more opportunity with this elite program.

    Plus, with Schneider’s recently updated Accelerate app, you can pick and track your loads, view your settlements, refer drivers and more — from almost any device.

  • Bigger money

    Choose the loads that maximize your bottom line

    You pick your loads, and you pick your schedule, so ultimately, you pick your revenue. With loads coming from an industry-leading freight base, the potential is there to rack up more than $210,000 in annual revenue. You’re in total control — no brokers or dispatchers. Just pick the load(s) you want with complete visibility to per-load revenue (no after-load deductions), and hit the road. Enjoy fuel discounts and weekly settlements for consistent cash flow. Watch the load board demonstration video below to see how it works.
