The role of delivery driver is to serve our valued customers to the highest standards in the industry. We utilize various trucks to complete our deliveries: pickup trucks with a lumber rack; single axle, dump flat bed, 20′ box van with loading ramp; tandem axle 24′ flatbed with detachable(Piggy Back) forklift; and, 8000 lb hard tire forklifts in the lumber yard. Tasks for our associates through-out a typical day include but are not limited to • Delivering product safely • Load building • Checking invoices and ensuring our customers are loaded accurately and in a timely manner • Continuous Safety and cleanliness sweeps. • Putting Freight away as needed. • Rotation of stock material • Light maintenance • Any other tasks the yard supervisor deems appropriate when not busy with deliveries.

Duties & Responsibilities

  • Safety Check and maintain fluid levels, light and marker lamps, bleed air brakes and keep equipment clean. Report any concerns or needed maintenance items to supervisor for correction or scheduling of repair.
  • Assist with loading delivery vehicles either manually or utilize forklift.
  • Secure load to delivery vehicle with cinch binder straps, rope, banding or other form of restraint.
  • Deliver building materials to the job site utilizing the equipment itemized above.
    • This requires the employee to assess the job site and determine a safe area to unload the product.
    • For dump bed loads, the employee must unstrap the bunk or banded together materials, tilt the bed to a 45 degree angle releasing the bunk and pull out from under the load.
    • For forklift loads, the employee will un-strap the bunks of material from the truck, access the piggy back forklift (1st step is 23″ above ground level), remove lift from truck, unload bunks of lumber from the truck with the forklift and place around job site in a safe and accessible area. This requires the employee to get off the forklift to place dunnage under the bunk of lumber and then get back on the lift. This step is 8″ above ground at this time. Once all materials are unloaded the employee will then remount the forklift, secure it to the truck and return to the lumberyard.
    • For delivery of finish or fragile materials, this may require manually unloading items such as doors (100 lbs), trim (20 lbs.) and boxes of hardware (50 lbs.) Weights given are at the high end of those product lines.
