As a vehicle that enjoys the preferential policy of exempting purchase of additional taxes, the liquid supply vehicle can not only easily settle on the general cargo transportation license plate, but also reduce the front disc and rear drum of the chassis, the engine speed limit, the European standard tank mouth, and the subsea valve in the vehicle configuration compared with the oil tanker. Compulsory additional equipment such as the transportation medium: well washing fluid, lubricating oil, mixing station additives, non-flammable and explosive materials such as edible oil, first purchase cost (much lower than tanker truck), road operation management (supply There have been huge differences between the general cargo on the liquid truck and the dangerous cargo on the tank truck. Now we will simply distinguish and compare the two models, so that the majority of users can choose the right model according to their needs and avoid unnecessary expenses.

3. Requirements for driver qualifications:

a. The driver of the liquid supply truck only needs to have a qualification certificate for general cargo transportation.

b. The driver of the tank truck must have a qualification certificate for dangerous goods transportation, and the co-pilot must also be equipped with an escort (and hold a dangerous goods transportation escort certificate).

The tank body must be equipped with an emergency shut-off valve (subsea valve) at the bottom of the tank, a European standard tank port, and an optional oil and gas recovery device and a professional pipeline for lowering oil according to national regulations. The car chassis must be equipped with front disc and rear drum and engine speed limiter.
