Safely improve profitability for your tanker truck transport
Petroleum and chemicals
Feb. 28 2021
Your transport activity requires tanker lorries that optimise your payload - given how heavy the truck and equipment are. Your tanker trucks may be used to transport liquid bulk products or hazardous materials, so a high level of safety is necessary for both the goods and drivers. Renault Trucks can guide you in your choice of vehicles and services.
Tanker trucks: optimise journeys thanks to a higher payload
Whether you are transporting hydrocarbons, liquid bulk or powdered products, you should use the lightest￼ possible trucks to ensure good profitability and optimise your payload. The Renault Trucks D WIDE (4x2 or 6x2) or the D 4x2 boast very light chassis, and meet most tanker transport constraints - regardless of the environment.
Ensure safety for drivers and goods
If your tanker trucks are transporting hazardous products, then safety plays a major role in your activity. To prevent any risks, the Renault Trucks T Tanker boasts many safety features:
- Battery master, easily accessible from the back and outside of the cab
- Flame arrestor on the exhaust pipe
- Pre-equipped with a highlighted ADR plate, detailing the transported goods’ hazard type and level
- Tyre pressure control system
- Seat with a longitudinal suspension to avoid swaying
Additionally, Renault Trucks offers efficient driving training courses for your drivers. This course is taught by our experts as part of the Optifuel programme, enabling you to not only ￼reduce fuel costs by 15%, but also act on safety. By striving to apply efficient driving principles, drivers will learn to reduce￼ accident risks.
Manage your tanker fleet to optimise deliveries
In light of customer requests and constraints set by driving conditions and safety for tanker transports, it is not always easy to optimise fleet use. Thanks to the Optifleet smart solution, Renault Trucks helps you plan your journeys, follow up on vehicles, inform you if they are in an ADR zone, and if necessary, assign a task or change an itinerary directly. Furthermore, with Optifleet, you will be granted access to the vehicle’s technical data (consumption, usage), as well as to the total time spent by drivers on the road. All these items will help you manage your fleet in the most profitable way possible, to secure your activity.

Increase vehicle uptime
Tanker transport is no place for unforeseen events, especially when it concerns hazardous products. Here at Renault Trucks, we used this observation as a basis for our Predict solution - an offer comprising new and innovative services that enable us to intervene on your truck before it even breaks down. How does it work? Your vehicle’s data is saved on a dedicated digital platform. Depending on the vehicle’s usage and condition, the platform will schedule interventions and warn your advisor. The latter will then contact you and set an appointment to do any required maintenance work, at a time that suits you and does not hinder company operation. You can therefore remain competitive, and make sure your tanker trucks remain fully available.
