The Women In Trucking Association and Freightliner Trucks are seeking nominations for the group’s 2018 Influential Woman in Trucking Award.
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.

Freightliner is pleased to be able to sponsor this award and to highlight the exceptional female leaders that help shape our industry.”
In its eight year, the award honors female leaders in the trucking industry. Past recipients include Maria Taylor, chief executive officer of Bennett International Group; Rebecca Brewster, president and chief operating officer of American Transportation Research Institute, and Kari Rihm, president of Rihm Kenworth.
Nominees will be accepted through Sept. 1.
