Truck drivers might feel like they’re their own boss while on the road, but like any other type of boss, a truck driver is only as successful as his team. And because truck drivers play such an integral role in transporting items globally, they must have strong support.
Many people don’t realize that companies like SunOne Logistics spend a lot of time, money, and effort recruiting the best truck drivers and spend a large portion of their budget hiring and training the in-house teams that support these drivers.
What Do Support Staff Do?
From dispatchers and managers to mechanics and dockworkers, truckers rely on their support teams from beginning to end. Inadequate support at any of these positions can cause delays and errors that impact drivers and customers alike.
Before a trucker climbs into his cab, numerous support staffers have paved the way for them to have a smooth ride. Salespeople found and secured the lead, mechanics ensured the truck was working well, the dispatchers assigned the route, and dockworkers loaded or unloaded the truck.
Once the driver hits the road, having access to a support team keeps them from running into headaches and helps maintain the intricate network that keeps everything going smoothly.
Support, Technology, Reliability
All that support work clears the road so truckers can do what they do best: drive. But at SunOne, we know it is equally important to ease the path for our support staff.
