LOADERS are utilized in trucks to un-stack and offload freight. Trucks are usually loaded with equipment varying from Sound gear to Lighting Truss to Set Carts. Over 90% of all gear on these trucks are on wheels and roll from the truck to the ramp for STAGEHANDS to deliver to different departments. The number of LOADERS placed into trucks is based on 2 factors, truck length and truck pack. (2) LOADERS will be assigned to any truck 26’ or under. Additional LOADERS will be added to any truck if the truck cannot be safely unloaded by the (2) LOADERS. Regardless of pack there will be a minimum of 4 LOADERS for any truck 26’1" or longer.
Over the years Local 55 truck loaders have worked on many rock and country shows along with theatrical productions and yellow card shows in the Roanoke Valley and throughout the region. Our skilled membership has also worked on many other productions including trade shows, and outdoor events as well.
