The deadline for the 2016 Women In Trucking Distinguished Woman in Logistics award has been set for Dec. 31, and the organization is still seeking nominations.
The honor recognizes the achievements and leadership of outstanding women involved in logistics in North America. The award is open to high-performing women in any field related to the practice of logistics, including warehousing, traffic and shipping, supply chain management, third-party logistics, trucking, rail and maritime cargo.
Anyone can nominate a candidate by downloading, completing and submitting a nomination form from the WIT website by Dec. 31, 2015. The award is co-sponsored by TMW Systems and Truckstop.com.
“The vast and growing practice of logistics represents one of the transportation industry’s most rewarding career opportunities, yet recent studies have shown that women hold fewer than one in four of these jobs,” said Monica Truelsch, director of marketing, TMW Systems. “This award program highlights the very talented and accomplished women who are making important contributions to the field. By recognizing their success, we hope to attract hundreds of additional women to our industry.”
The winner of the Distinguished Woman in Logistics award will be announced during the Transportation Intermediaries Association Capital Ideas Conference and Exhibition, April 6-9, 2016, in San Antonio, Texas.
Members of the judging panel are: Adrian Gonzalez, president, Adelante SCM; Kate Miller, president, Blue Edge Marketing Ltd.; Diane A. Mollenkopf, Ph.D., McCormick associate professor of logistics and director, Ph.D. program in supply chain management, University of Tennessee; Fred Moody, editor and publisher, Logistics Quarterly; and Ellen Voie, president of Women in Trucking.
