Safely improve profitability for your tanker truck transport
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.
If you need a larger storage capacity, ￼we designed the Renault Trucks T Tanker. This is a vehicle in which as many items as possible are made￼ of aluminium, meaning they are much lighter:
- Fuel tank
- Wheel coupling￼
Furthermore, the Renault Trucks T Tanker is also available in a low cab version, which also saves on weight whilst maintaining the driver’s comfort.
Tanker versions also exist for the Renault Trucks D and Renault Trucks D Wide models. They have aluminium rims, adapted fuel tanks and a clear right-hand longeron so the body-builder’s pumping equipment can be installed.
In a nutshell, Renault Trucks Tanker models were configured for exceptional payload. A higher payload means more goods transported during each journey, and therefore improved profitability for your activity.
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.

When financing your vehicles with Renault Trucks, you are sure to deal with professionals that are perfectly aware of your activity and its constraints. Our contracts are flexible, adapt to your needs, and maintain your load capacity and cash flow - whether you opt for a finance lease or a hire-purchase.
