English term or phrase: shag drivers
I am translating some notes for a training session and there appears a list of some positions within a company.
One of them says "Shag Drivers (Shipping)" and that's all the context.
The client explained the following:
SHAG, SHAG DRIVER, SHAG TRUCK: Shagging involves bringing loaded trailers to and from terminals so that long haul drivers can DROP AND HOOK rather than spend their time loading and unloading
SHAG DRIVERS take the trailers to and from the shipping and receiving docks.

Do you have any idea how they are called in Spanish?
Thanks a lot!!!!
