Success Training Strategies Improve Route Delivery Driver Recruitment and Retention

Standish, MI, December 11, 2014 --( The Delivering Excellence newsletter profiled Maines Paper & Food Service and Ben E. Keith Foods and shared some of their successful training strategies. A foodservice delivery driver commonly makes 15 stops on a daily route, lifts hundreds of cases of product during that route, rotates inventory at customer locations, adheres to rules of the cold chain, interfaces with restaurant staff, and drives a truck.

In the case of foodservice drivers, this add-on training is key to maintaining exceptional customer service.
