Ohio Dry Van Loads

Truck drivers use Dry Van vehicles to transport goods and materials from one area to another.
A truck driver may perform the following tasks:
  • check brakes, oil, tyres and electrical systems
  • drive defensively and handle hazardous road conditions
  • load goods onto the truck either by hand, or by using a forklift or other lifting equipment
  • make sure that the load is correctly placed and secure it by using ropes and chains to avoid damage to the truck or the goods
  • calculate and estimate the weight of loads to comply with load limits
  • couple and uncouple trailers
  • change heavy tyres and clean and maintain vehicles
  • cover the load with tarpaulin
  • drive vehicles to their destination and unload
  • check items against inventory, noting breakage and damage
  • collect payments and issue receipts
  • maintain a log book with details of trips, including rest breaks on long trips.

Truck drivers may drive company-owned vehicles or be owner-drivers. Owner-drivers must obtain their own delivery work. Truck drivers carry a wide variety of goods, including flammable substances, raw materials, building materials, manufactured goods, livestock and refrigerated products. Being a truck driver may mean early starts and days away from family and friends. Modern technology has improved the driver's comfort with some trucks equipped with bunks, televisions, refrigerators and ergonomically designed seats.
