Associated NOC Code: NOC Code: 7511 – Transport Truck Drivers

Job Prospects: Exceptional

Education: Often Required

Salary Range: Coming Soon

Shunt Truck Drivers drive around a yard, moving trailers and equipment to ensure everything is where it should be. Shunt truck driving can be an entry point for newly licensed drivers interested in working in the trucking and logistics industry.

Shunt Truck Drivers spend their days moving or ‘shunting’ empty and loaded trailers from loading docks to and from the yard and make sure trailers are in the right place at the right time.

Some employers require their Shunt Truck Drivers to be licensed. This will depend on the shunting equipment used, for example, a Class 3/D license to drive a straight truck, a class A/1 to drive an articulated truck, and an endorsement to drive a vehicle with air brakes (A/Z endorsement).
