My day as a Final Mile Driver starts with unloading a trailer full of the product we'll be delivering that day or in the near future. We then load our own trucks and push out immediately after, delivering to various businesses and personal residences. After all is said and done, we make our way back to the shop, park the trucks, do anything else we need to do (usually not much) and go home! Easy day.
My shift is 11pm to 11am. I typically only work 10hrs though. Usually I already have several pre plans on me when I show up to work. I start the day checking the truck then head to rail yard to get first load to deliver then pickup load and bring it back to the rail yard. Rinse and repeat this routine for around 10hrs a day.
