There is a fine visible link between the milk producers and milk processors which is filled by means of transportation, provided by Milk hauling companies. The milk producers provide the service of raw milk which is transported through tank trucks and tractor-trailers to the various processing units which are in need of the same. Not just the milk transport services, safety is as well offered and guaranteed by the companies, which in terms has a direct and proportionate effect on the value of dairy products.
How Important is the Milk Hauling Vehicle
When the milk hauling began, the haulers used all kind of stake bodied trucks or a horse-drawn wagon which would be enough to carry at least 10 gallons of milk, which would be relocated to the reload stations or the processing units. They were used for quite a while, for the trucks served as a multipurpose vehicle which would also serve various needs such as ices, eggs, freight or at times furniture.
The further chains underwent a change and the cans turned out into bulky tanks. Tankers came into the system as the reloading facilities stopped, which resulted in the need for these bulky tanks in order to accommodate the huge demand for milk.
As far as the quantity of the trucks is considered, the capacity of the trucks in the earliest stage was 200 to 250 cans which can be roughly translated as 2500 gallons. This was further updated in the year 1960s and 70s when the capacity was somewhat of 400 cans as in 1000 gallons. But now, you shouldn’t be surprised to find a high capacitated truck as that of 7200 gallons.
If we talk about the types of vehicles used to haul milk, at present, there are 3 types of famous vehicles. These vehicles are used in the process of assembling all the raw milk from various farms and further on delivering them to their destination processing facilities. They are – double axle trucks, triple axle trucks and lastly tractors. A great number of axles represents greater capacity and hence, triple axle trucks are capable of hauling much more gallons of milk than a double axle truck.

What makes a milk transport service qualified?
Milk transport services have become a different field of specialization in itself. This is because the demand for them has increased immensely and they act as a necessary link that has an impact on the dairy industry. However, so are there the necessities with the services which must be fulfilled by the haulers. Haulers in present times are required to have a fully-fledged technical understanding and not the physical strength of carrying gallons of milk. The hauler has to be well versed with the safety requirements of the food which in this case is milk, sanitary standards set by the law, most importantly proficiency on weights and measures are very important to carry on the services with utmost dedication, in order to fulfil the required task.
However, there are certain kinds of issues which are often experienced by the milk hauler, which have no solutions and hence, the Distributor has to work together with the carrier to ensure the transaction goes as smoothly as possible.
