The shelves would be empty without a fleet of truck drivers delivering goods across the country, and these vital shipping companies would not run without driver supervisors. While truck drivers are responsible for getting from point A to point B, the driver supervisor makes sure everybody knows where point B is, among other things.
The driver supervisor coordinates the shipping and transportation needs for a company. This can involve scheduling drivers, coordinating routes, supervising loading and unloading, and dealing with any problems as they pop up. The driver supervisor also has to be good with people as they work with a team of drivers and train new hires.
This may come as a surprise, but above all, the driver supervisor needs to be a stickler for safety. Truck driving may seem like a fun job in movies and music, but it is a very dangerous one. The driver supervisor makes sure all DOT procedures are followed and that all drivers and their cargo reach their destinations safe and sound.
