Pros: Freedom to work without someone over your shoulder constantly
Cons: Poor Leadership and vision
My workday consists of monitoring drivers out on routes, ensuring adherence to company and dot rules/regulations. Routing orders for specific delivery day/times. Notating and researching any merchandise shortages from our daily deliveries. Reviewing returning drivers paperwork ensuring adherence to core-mark delivery process and procedures and addressing/coaching on any variations in our delivery process. I create the schedules for daily deliveries allocating/reallocating drivers on an as needed basis and confirm with the drivers, their next days assignment in regards to which route they will be on, the length of the route and when their route departs. I also train/coach drivers on any issues or concerns.
Constant monitoring of our fleet of tractors and trailers scheduling any noted issues for repair immediately upon notification of equipment issues.
