Redefining the Road, the official magazine of the Women In Trucking Association, has named its Top 50 Companies for Women to Work For in Transportation.

Publisher Brian Everett cited five key features distinguishing the companies recognized on this list:

  • corporate cultures that foster gender diversity
  • competitive compensation and benefits
  • flexible hours and work requirements
  • professional development opportunities
  • career advancement opportunities. 

“This newly created award is driven by the marketplace, and the sheer number of individuals in the industry who participated in the process is incredible,” Everett said. Nearly 150 nominations were received, and more than 7,000 votes were cast to identify the companies named to the list.

According to Ellen Voie, president and CEO of WIT, the magazine created the award to support WIT’s mission: To encourage the employment of women in the trucking industry, promote their accomplishments, and minimize obstacles faced by women working in the trucking industry.

The list comprises a diverse range of business sectors in the freight transportation marketplace, including motor carriers, third-party logistics companies, and original equipment manufacturers.
