Anyone can nominate a candidate by completing and submitting the nomination form by Jan. 13, 2017. The award is being sponsored by Truckstop.com.

“The Distinguished Woman in Logistics award recognizes a woman who has shown leadership in her role in supply chain management while supporting her community through humanitarian activities,” said Ellen Voie, president and CEO, Women In Trucking Association. “We look forward to honoring someone who has gone above and beyond her role in logistics and is both a role model and a pioneer in the industry.”
