A yard driver works in a truck yard to organize tractor trailers in order to make sure they are ready for unloading, and transport. A yard driver uses yard mules to move trailers around the truck yard, in and out of loading docks. Yard drivers are usually responsible for cleaning and basic maintenance of trailers and refrigerated trailers, conducting pre and post-trip inspections, loading and unloading cargo, and conducting other typical job duties.
