Haulage driver

As a haulage driver, your work consists of driving various consignments from one location to another. You must enjoy having a varied working life, and like the fact that one day you might be driving products for distribution to shops while the next transporting goods to a central warehouse.

At Frode Laursen, drivers are able to work in shifts, with trucks being shared by several people. Professionally, we require that you hold a CE licence which permits you to tow a trailer over 750 kg.

As a haulage driver, you get …

… a working day where no two days are ever the same. You can often decide whether you want to drive days or nights. You become part of an experienced and skilled group of drivers, where a good collegial spirit is greatly valued.

He starts each day between 3:30 and 6:30 in the morning.

– After that I climb up into my cab, and drive off with consumer goods for two to ten customers. My customers are mainly small shopkeepers, whom I now know very well, says Erik, whose working day varies depending on the number of deliveries and the driving and rest periods.

When asked what he likes most about the job, he he replies immediately:

– The freedom. I have what we call freedom with responsibility. I also enjoy getting out and talking to some of the shopkeepers, and driving around the country. When you’ve been driving for many years, you get to know the customers well, and that’s nice, he says, while adding that another good thing about working for Frode Laursen is that an agreement is an agreement:
