Women In Trucking
- Our Community
The Women In Trucking Association is a non-profit organization focused on the transportation and logistics industry. Our 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 Women In Trucking Association was founded in 2007. In just a few short years, through the support of thousands of transportation-related companies, drivers and dedicated individuals, this organization has made significant strides in accomplishing its mission.

Although the trucking industry has made great strides to accommodate women, there are still obstacles that might cause some to avoid this career opportunity and others who choose to leave. As carriers advertise automated transmissions, air ride seats, drop and hook freight, and regional runs, the industry becomes more attractive for female drivers as well as their male counterparts.
Outside of the truck, our focus is to bring more women into leadership roles to create a more diverse environment and to tap into unrealized potential. We represent women who design the trucks, own the trucks, sell the trucks, fix the trucks, and drive the trucks.
In our short history, Women In Trucking has accomplished a great deal since the association was formed. At that first meeting held in March of 2007, twelve innovative and influential women formed the first board of directors and established the group’s mission.
