Safeguards Transporters – The Simple Blue Trucks That Haul Nuclear Material

Think you have a tough job? Imagine driving a truck loaded up with nuclear material.

Jalopnik features a story on the trucks that haul nuclear cargo, known as “Safeguards Transporters”, revealed through a Freedom of Information act request.

These unmarked blue trucks move plutonium and highly enriched uranium. While no specific details are described, the trucks are reported to feature complex safety and security devices to keep nuclear material secure in the event of an accident and from falling into the wrong hands.
