It’s important to always be polite and professional to clients. Having an above average ability to drive efficiently and safely and in so doing reduce fuel costs. It is important to have sufficient knowledge of a truck’s operating system and be able to make basic repairs to trucks in the event of an emergency. Always being on time and possessing the physical and mental stamina to deal with any road issues that may occur. Another important quality is being able to work independently and using my initiative to ensure smooth deliveries every time.
