Delivery Driver

Delivery drivers deliver goods. They plan their daily routes, receive the goods to be delivered, load their vehicles and deliver the goods to customers. Sometimes they also install appliances/equipment for customers or service appliances/equipment.

Delivery drivers are employed in businesses that provide services for customers. These are companies providing textile rental, mobile sanitation systems or office machinery, cleaning services, private postal and courier services, forwarding, wholesalers, grocers providing home delivery of frozen foods, breweries, restaurants that deliver, or social services such as ‘meals on wheels’. Delivery drivers also work for e.g. pizza delivery companies.
