Freight is typically not just dumped into and out of shipping vehicles. Rather, it must be carefully arranged to maximize space requirements of the cargo area. In addition, not all freight to be shipped or unloaded is created equal. Some cargo may have specific handling rules, while other cargo may have priority status. The loader/unloader's job involves working through all these parameters accurately. The loader and unloader must take all precautions to ensure accuracy in his or her operations to ensure that time-sensitive cargo is loaded into a transport that will take it to the desired next hub.
The background requirements to work as a loader and unloader are not particularly steep, as most companies in warehousing and shipping will look for experience and physical ability to perform the job over all other considerations. Most employers will offer on-the-job training regarding shipping tags and the operation of equipment like loading dollies and forklifts. A loader and unloader should also be easily able to lift and carry at least 50 pounds and do so regularly. Loader/unloaders typically work in a warehouse loading dock environment, but they may be assigned to daytime, evening, or even overnight shift work.
