Carrier Access

Tesoro Logistics welcomes our customers and customers’ carriers and recognizes the valuable role that carriers play in the supply chain. To facilitate the set-up of a new carrier as well as support the on-going management and administration of carrier access information, we have provided below our Carrier Access guidelines and relevant forms.

Getting established to load at a Tesoro facility is comprised of four primary steps (with forms and instructions provided below):

  1. Carrier Access Agreement – signed with supporting documentation
  2. Safety Procedures – reviewed
  3. Drivers – background checked, communicated to the facility and appropriately trained
  4. Trucks and Tankers – communicated to facility with appropriate testing information
