A good example is a dump truck driver delivering gravel to a road site. If the dump truck is late, work almost grinds to a halt as they wait for that gravel to work on the next section. Manufacturing often works on a just-in-time delivery system. Products are delivered and go straight into the manufacturing process. A good example is fresh produce that is processed into final products.
Truck drivers are one of the key components to a wide range of industries. In fact, some would argue that truck drivers are a key component to our society’s success. Fresh milk in your supermarket relies on several trucks – from dairy farmer to processing plant to supermarket, and to be fresh each movement needs to be done in a timely fashion.
Reliability is a trait that truck drivers can develop, however, they do need to develop that trait quite quickly. Learning how to navigate from A to B, how to follow GPS guidance, and how to avoid traffic snarls is all part and parcel of a truck driver’s job. We can train you to become a very good truck driver. It’s experience and the advice of fellow drivers that will teach you reliability.
