    Do they load there own trailers or does the warehouse workers? Do they load the bay trailers and if they do, how do they load them?

    I worked for Pepsi years ago. At are location warehouse guys loaded the trucks. At Budweiser in town their drivers helped load so it depends on the company. At Pepsi the bays were loaded by brand and size. 20oz bottles in a few bags, 2 liters in another, etc.

    not sure where @FlaSwampRat is nowadays ( i took a hiatus ) but read over some if not all of his posts...he's the beverage guru. There's a few more, but I can't think of 'em, atm.

    @Chinatown probably knows....

    Warehouse usually gets it. But the driver is the one to unload those things on route.

    May not be what you're asking for. But when I worked for bud. Warehouse would load it but I'd stand there and verify the count. If we had shorts we were responsible for it

    House of LaRose here in Cleveland is the big Budweiser Distributor. They operate the same way. Warehouse loads and driver counts.
