Tanker bodies, or rigid tankers, come in different axle configurations such as 4 x 2, 6 x 4 and 8 x 4. This type of truck is generally used for transporting liquid fuel, oil, milk, gas and more.
The Australian transport network relies heavily on road transport because of the country’s immense area and low population density. Three-quarters of the country’s domestic freight is transported by road, ensuring that people get to see products they need on supermarket shelves. Rigid trucks carry an estimated 18.3% of domestic freight.
Moving cargo in Australia requires compliance with many regulations that are meant to protect the general public’s interests. If you handle dangerous cargo such as fuel and gas, you need to make sure you have the best insurance cover to protect you from certain risks you face in transporting your load.
