Dairy Plant Shipping Room Operator

Publix Associate

The Dairy Plant Shipping Room Operators make sure milk, tea, juices, and other dairy products are loaded onto Publix trucks for shipment to the stores.

How to Apply


In 2010, our three Dairy Plants processed approximately 100 million gallons of milk, along with many other products. The milk alone is enough to keep the Shipping Room Operators extremely busy! Shipping Room Operators select the product to be shipped. They then palletize the product and use a tow motor to load it on the truck to be delivered to Publix stores. In between shipments, the Shipping Room Operators complete paperwork and clean their work area.
