Route Driver Jobs

Route Driver Overview


Route Drivers do more than drive vehicles from place to place. Those who do this type of work often deliver goods to and from retail stores, residences and railroad stations. The position requires physical strength and stamina because drivers are often required to do much bending and lifting as they load and unload items. Those employed as route drivers might be required to present invoices and collect payment. Record keeping is necessary as drivers must keep track of all pick-ups and deliveries as well as any payments received. In addition, route drivers must be personable and be comfortable speaking with the customers whom they service. They also might be expected to up-sell merchandise or suggest add-ons to existing products.

Route Driver Education Requirements


Light truck and delivery service drivers require a high school diploma or its equivalent. Experience may not be necessary; however, a valid driver's license and a clean driving record is compulsory. Many companies provide on-the-job training, making this an excellent career choice for those who want to make a change.

Knowledge of hand held scanners could be helpful because delivery drivers are required to keep track of what enters and leaves their vehicles. Some companies may require knowledge of or provide training in the use of forklifts, truck lift gates and similar mechanical devices. Drivers might use global positioning software to guide them along their routes; therefore, those who understand how to use them might have an advantage over those who do not. Sales skills are a plus as well as a working knowledge of mathematics.

Route Driver Job Market


It is difficult to pin down by industry how open the job market is for route drivers since statistics include everything from newspaper delivery to food service. However, it is estimated that the job market will increase by 7 percent in the next decade. If you have more experience, a similar position would be as a Route Manager.

Route Driver Salary

Salaries for this position vary according to location and industry. The median salary for a Route Driver in the United States is $33,940.
