Company Details

Miller Transporters, Inc. has remained a family owned company for over seven decades. The year was 1942 when H.D. Miller began his story with no intentions of starting a transportation company, but when the WWII war effort confiscated the railcars used to supply his fueling station; he acquired an old Shell tank truck and hit the pavement making trips back and forth to fill his storage tanks. H.D. Miller had an obligation to provide for his wife and six sons so he worked diligently until he fulfilled that promise. He eventually got out of the fuel retail business and into the transportation side as he grew his fleet. Even in our third generation, we continue to honor founder H.D. Miller’s commitment to making each and every driver feel like one of the family. 

Miller has a proud history of successful owner operators and we pledge to stand behind our drivers in a profitable partnership by offering industry-leading opportunities. For those prospective truck owners, Miller provides an avenue for experienced Class A drivers to purchase their own tractor while also gratefully welcoming existing owner operators. Miller Transporters, Inc. transports a wide range of hazardous and nonhazardous bulk liquid chemicals nationwide. If you seek a tanker company with a passion for both your safety and that of the customers then you have arrived at your final destination. The experience of the past keeps Miller Transporters looking toward the future, and that future involves YOU!

“NO COST” EASY START-UP:

“Why buy a pump when we will let you use ours at no charge?”

It’s financially tough for a contractor to transition to a new carrier and we want to make the transition as easy as possible. Compare our “no cost” start-up to our competitors and then you’ll see why it just makes sense to make the move to Miller Transporters.

  • Miller will provide parts and installation of all pumps, hoses, in-transit heat capability, power take-offs and fittings. Not only do we not charge, we also maintain the equipment and pump at no charge.
  • If necessary, Miller will also pay to relocate fifth wheel to Miller specifications, removal of hand valve, relocation of equipment to make room for pump installation.
  • Miller will provide the first set of permits at no charge to the Contractor. Contractors will be responsible for the purchase of subsequent permits.
  • Miller will pay for the initial physical and drug screen.
  • Miller provides D.O.T required inspection on Contractor equipment at an interval of 90 days at no cost to the Contractor.
