This week marks the NTTC’s Tank Truck Week, which begins Nov. 11 and runs through Nov. 13 at the George Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas. It’s an annual event that brings the entire tank truck industry together, and combines exhibition with product showcase and also education. This year, the program will focus on topics of interest for several key operating functions of any tank truck company such as safety, vehicle and equipment maintenance, and driver relations.

For the last two years, Omnitracs has supported the NTTC as part of its exclusive sponsorship of a series of C-level industry discussions on best practices within the tank truck industry. This year is no different and Omnitracs will host “NTTC Safety Council Leadership Discussion with Grand Champion Robert Weller,” on Nov. 12. This will be an exciting session and feature Dean Kaplan, CEO of K-Limited Carrier, Ltd., Ray Riley, director of safety for Miller Transporters, Inc., and Randy Vaughn, senior vice president of Superior Bulk Logistics. Notably, Robert Weller, driver for Hahn Transport and 2014-2015 Tank Truck Driver of the Year, will sit on the panel and lend his voice and experience on safety and tank truck driving. Weller brings more than 40 years of petroleum transport driver experience at Hahn Transportation and has been serving as a mentor to many younger drivers in addition to being a symbol of safety—he’s accumulated nearly four million accident-free miles of driving.

In addition to having Weller’s safety leadership and driver perspective, the panel will explore the issue of 18-year olds driving class 8 trucks, driver relations with management and peers, video safety technology, efficiency, operations and the driver shortage. With such business-critical issues on the discussion table, the panelists will deliver actionable insights that the entire tank truck community can use.
