Concrete is the most widely used man-made material for buildings, roads, agriculture and other important applications. Drivers who transport ready mix concrete are vital for the growth of the economy. And unlike over the road haulers, ready mix drivers have the benefit of working close to home.
A ready mix driver is responsible for transporting freshly mixed concrete from the batch plant to the job site in a safe manner. Drivers are responsible for making normal operating adjustments to the equipment and material being hauled.
