The National Tank Truck Carriers announced that John “Hans” Schaupp has been elected as the organization’s new chairman at the NTTC’s recent annual meeting in San Francisco. Schaupp succeeds Greg Hodgen of Enid, Okla.-based Groendyke Transport, who now serves as chairman of NTTC’s executive committee.

“I am both thrilled and honored to serve as NTTC chairman,” commented Schaupp. “NTTC made great strides in its commitment to safety and serving its membership last year with Greg Hodgen leading the charge, and I am confident we will only continue to improve on that record.”

Schaupp says he plans to focus on four main priorities, including continued implementation of the organization’s strategic plan, its planned leadership transition, a streamlined organizational structure and success for the tank truckers’ “Call on Washington program coming up in June.”

Schaupp is president of Green Bay, Wis.-based LCL Bulk Transport, a food-grade carrier that specializes in liquid chocolate transportation. Schaupp is the third generation in his family to run LCL, and he follows in the footsteps of his father, Robert Schaupp, who also served as NTTC chairman in 1990-1991 and developed a patent for the Shaker Tank, an tank truck designed to allow more efficient unloading of viscous foods.
