A Modern Transportation tanker transloads a non-hazardous chemical at a rail facility north of Ft Worth TX. Liquid transloading activity has been growing steadily for the tank truck carrier, which runs five transload stations of its own and operates more than 400 tractors, 100 tank trailers, and 415 dry bulkers.
Liquid chemical transloading from tankcars has become an increasingly important piece of business for Modern Transportation.
Tractors used in liquid bulk operations have Roper product pumps and American Eagle compressors.
Tractors used in liquid bulk operations have Gardner Denver hydraulic power systems.
Some tank trailers in the fleet were specified with Garnet level gauges.
