Women In Trucking Association Names 2021 Top Companies for Women to Work For in Transportation


PLOVER, Wis., Oct. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Redefining the Road magazine, the official magazine of the Women In Trucking Association (WIT), announced today the recipients of the 2021 "Top Companies for Women to Work For in Transportation." According to Ellen Voie, president and CEO of WIT, the magazine created the award in 2018 to support an element of WIT's mission: to promote the accomplishments of companies that are focused on the employment of women in the trucking industry.

"As women rise through the ranks in the transportation industry, we are excited to feature the companies that make the extra effort to attract and retain a more gender-diverse workforce," said Voie. "We applaud their efforts and this distinction is our way of giving them the recognition they deserve."

There are a number of characteristics that distinguish companies recognized on this list, according to Brian Everett, publisher of Redefining the Road. These characteristics include corporate cultures that foster gender diversity; competitive compensation and benefits; flexible hours and work requirements; professional development opportunities; and career advancement opportunities.

"Identifying the companies on this list involves a two-step process," said Everett. "First, nominations of the companies are received and carefully reviewed to ensure they qualify by meeting a minimum threshold of qualifications. Then the final ballot of companies is voted on by individuals in the industry. This is the fourth year of this prestigious recognition program and it garnered more than 14,000 votes to identify the final companies named to the list."

The list is comprised of a diverse range of business sectors in the commercial freight transportation marketplace, including motor carriers, third-party logistics companies, and original equipment manufacturers. These companies will be recognized at the upcoming WIT Accelerate! Conference & Expo Nov. 7-9 in Dallas. Penske Transportation Solutions is the sponsor of this year's program.
