    Whats the job title for Ups parcel drivers that drive in the day cab with 53ft. trailer? I always see them going to distribution centers. Most of the time they are in and out. Are those city drivers?

    As the person above me mentioned, anybody who drives a semi truck at UPS is considered a feeder driver. Feeder drivers pull rail chassis, long boxes, pups and doubles.

    Also on the UPS website the Feeder Classification is called Tractor Trailer Driver if you want to work under the Small Package Division. The Road Driver job classification is for UPS Freight. Read the descriptions carefully.

    Feeder Drivers that are on a “city pickup job”. They take an mty to a customer, drop and then hook to a load. Some customers like Amazon who get a tremendous amount of returns, they take a load of returns and return with an outbound load.

    Some of those long boxes with the doors on the side go to the airport.

    The daytime feeder drivers doing that city work probably have over 20 years of seniority, right?
