Route drivers pick up and deliver supplies to various local customers. Many businesses that deliver and pick up supplies and materials hire route drivers to work full- and part-time hours during all shifts, including nights and weekends. Route drivers report to, and work most closely with, the dispatcher but primarily work independently. Being a route driver requires constant travel, but overnight and out-of-state drives are rarely required.

 Route Driver Duties and Responsibilities:

Job duties for route drivers vary depending on the number of deliveries and pickups they make and the materials they transport. However, these core duties are common despite those factors:

Review Route Sheets

Route drivers review daily route sheets to get a sense of where they're going and how many pickups and deliveries are scheduled for the day.

Transport Supplies and Materials

Route drivers transport supplies and materials, which may include waste and hazardous materials, safely and in accordance with company policy and all local and federal laws. This involves loading and unloading the delivery vehicle and ensuring that all cargo is safely secured before transport.

Talk to Dispatch

Route drivers check in with dispatch before and after pickups and deliveries.

Maintain Logs

Route drivers fill out delivery and pickup logs with accurate, detailed information.

Perform Vehicle Maintenance

Route drivers perform daily vehicle maintenance and report any maintenance issues to the dispatcher. This includes topping off vehicle fluids and checking the air pressure in tires. Route drivers also keep the delivery vehicle fueled up, ready to travel, and clean inside and out.

Communicate with Customers

Route drivers always interact with customers during pickups and deliveries and maintain professionalism.
