What is it?

Light Truck or Delivery Service Drivers drive a light truck or van with a cargo capacity of less than 26,000 pounds. With the massive increase in Amazon, online shopping, and meal delivery services, the need for local delivery has increased sharply.  As more customers are buying goods online, businesses are staffing up their need for local light truck and delivery service drivers.

What will I do?

Drivers usually pick-up and deliver packages or merchandise locally within town, but sometimes might go town to town or state to state, usually returning home each day. This includes loading and unloading their truck or van, and delivering packages to the front door of residences or directly to offices or businesses. Since you are driving, you will need a valid driver’s license and must obey traffic laws and safety procedures. You might need to collect and turn in receipts or verification from deliveries.
