Here are our top 10 Refrigerated Truck Jobs:

  • Farm to Market. Farmers who grow large crops often don’t want to take time out of the planting and harvesting to deal with getting their produce to market.  They also don’t want to spend money on a Reefer Truck.  So, they hire drivers from Refrigerated Trucks to do the job for them.

  • Grocery Store Delivery. Some Reefer Truck drivers make a living by driving for a specific grocery store or grocery store chain or, transport for a company that supplies refrigerated goods to grocery stores.  Usually, the job entails assisting the store employees with getting the items into the store which, of course, is included in the tab.
  • Restaurant Delivery. Restaurants have to get their refrigerated items from somewhere so they depend on truck drivers to deliver them at the perfect specified temperature.  You can deliver to one restaurant or to a number of them.  You may even get hired to drive for a chain.

You can’t drink the suds while driving, but there’s always after work to look forward to.  A lot of Reefer Truck drivers deliver beer to grocery stores, liquor stores, restaurants, and bars.  Nothing puts a smile on faces like seeing a truck with their favorite cans and bottles pulling up.
