What does a Loader do?

Loaders maintain the inventory of warehouses. They load and unload trucks and operate machinery and keep records of items loaded and unloaded into the warehouse. They work collaboratively with a team to ensure all processes run smoothly and efficiently. They work for various establishments and track deliveries and orders upon arrival and departure. They carry items that have arrived into the warehouse and maintain an inventory log.

Loaders follow safety procedures to prevent injuries while performing heavy lifting and operating warehouse equipment. This includes using required safety gear and handling all machines or moving parts with care. They utilize warehouse space efficiently and place cargo items accordingly. They sweep and mop floors as needed and ensure all items are stored properly. They operate machinery including a forklift, pallet jacks, and shrink wrap machines. Loaders do not have an educational requirement, but prior relevant experience working in a warehouse and being a team player are favorable.
