Frequently Asked Questions
Why Use All Chemical for Our Bulk Liquid Chemical Transportation?
When you partner with All Chemical, you deal with one company and one point of contact from start to finish. Since 1978, we have been a family owned and operated business. We are industry leaders, innovators, and adopters of new technology and services. Safety and compliance are important to us, and we have a Satisfactory rating from the Department of Transportation (DOT).
We own a large fleet of DOT coded tankers and ISO chassis and maintain our own equipment, greatly reducing downtime and costly delays without compromising safety. Our truck drivers are required to complete rigorous training in equipment operation and handling of hazardous chemicals.
We control every aspect of bulk liquid transportation in our tankers, from the moment you contact us until the job is complete. Whether you require specialized equipment, a specific type of wash, or steaming at a precise temperature, you’ll have one point of contact instead of juggling multiple vendor relationships.

Is All Chemical eco-conscious?
All Chemical is striving to make tangible, beneficial changes at our locations to create a more sustainable future for all of us. We maintain top of the line equipment, find innovative solutions to reuse resources, and strive to be forward thinking by harnessing renewable energy options.
First and foremost, we own and operate a newer fleet that adheres to stringent emissions standards, surpassing commonly mandated regulations. All our company trucks incorporate the CARB DEF method, a progressive technology that recycles emissions from diesel burn to power the engine, capturing the exhaust with a fluid coupled with additional fuel that is then rerun through the engine. This practice not only abides by the highest standard of emissions control but also enhances the efficiency of our operations. Additionally, all new trucks built to our specifications are automatics, meaning cost savings on fuel for us and you.
Additionally, an innovative solar farm perched atop 40 foot shipping containers is taking shape at our Lakewood HQ. We also burn our own waste oil. Typical oil changes result in waste oil that is incinerated, creating harmful emissions. We obtained a state permit for a specialized heater that comes with emissions protections, ensuring no black plume of smoke discharged during incineration. All of our waste oil is strategically stored in a cargo tank for future use to refill our shop’s tank as needed.
