    I don't know how to answer that, a road driver drives tractor trailers from yard to yard. A city driver/p&d driver is a driver that drives tractor trailer and delivers freight to our customers, we don't have any other driving jobs that we hire for.

    ​I need more information in the question to be able to answer.

    To the best of my knowlegde it depends on what the division of UPS the job is for. Ups freight has "road drivers" and UPS package has "tractor trailer drivers" or better known as "feeder drivers".
