The Women in Trucking Association and Navistar are seeking candidates for the 2014 Influential Woman In Trucking award.
Now in its fourth year, the award recognizes women who make or influence key decisions in a corporate, manufacturing, supplier, owner-operator, driver, sales or dealership setting. The winner must have a proven record of responsibility and have mentored or served as a role model to other women in the industry.
WIT and Navistar teamed up to develop this award in 2010 as a way to honor female leaders in trucking, and to attract and advance women within our industry. Winners have included Rebecca Brewster, president and chief operating officer, American Transportation Research Institute; Joyce Brenny, president of Brenny Transportation; and Rochelle Bartholomew, chief executive officer of CalArk International.
Last year, more than 100 women were nominated, representing a variety of leadership positions in the trucking industry. Nominations will be accepted through Jan. 31, 2014, at http://www.influentialwomanintruckingaward.com.
The winner will be announced at the Truckload Carriers Association annual convention in Grapevine, Texas, on March 25, 2014. If you nominate a candidate, please ask her to save the date for this event in case she is named a finalist.
Dart Transit has expanded its Dart Network with the opening of a service center in Pontoon Beach, just outside of the St. Louis metropolitan area.
