Tank trailers are built for the transportation of liquids and dry bulk materials. Their sturdy tank can handle a range of cargo, from milk to salt to corrosive chemicals. These unique vehicles can efficiently carry materials that would be otherwise difficult to move on standard trucks and trailers.

Tank trailers, also commonly called tanker trailers and fuel tank trailers, are unique in their design. There is a cab where the driver sits as usual. Instead of a flat bed or an enclosed square cargo space, there is a long cylinder tank.
Some fuel tank trailers have partitions dividing the tank into different sections. This can allow drivers to carry more than one material type on the same trip. Or it can help with liquid surges, which happens when liquid in the tank sloshes to one side and can cause the tank trailer to veer to one side.
Tank trailers range in their sizes. Some are smaller and easier to drive. Others are larger and harder to drive but can carry a larger amount of material. Tanker trailers are usually not exceptionally tall, which makes bridge height a non-issue, so you can craft your route without needing to worry about bridges along the way.
Tanker trailers can be broken up into four general categories depending on what they transport.
First, they can haul liquids such as gasoline and propane. Some of these liquids may require a Hazmat endorsement.
Second, they can carry liquids used for food. This can include water, milk, and juice. Some of the tanker trailers in this category can come with heating and/or cooling systems. There are also dry bulk, food-grade variations that can transport materials such as sugar or flour.
Third, they can transport industrial chemicals. They can even be designed to handle corrosive chemicals.
Fourth, they can haul dry bulk materials. This includes materials such as sand and fertilizer.
