I_heart_trucking Photo Contest

The eighth annual photo contest was centered around the theme 'WE Are Trucking!' From the person behind the wheel, dispatching the call, fixing the truck, manufacturing the part, making the sale, managing the inventory, leading the company, and beyond, a record-breaking 240+ participants showed their pride for their role in the trucking industry. They were able to be creative in using posters, t-shirts, stickers, signs, balloons, etc. Nearly 7,000 votes were cast to determine the People's Choice Winners and a panel of judges determined their favorites for the Judges' Choice Winners.

People's Choice Winner


'Trucking in our Blood'

Submitted by Amrita Rane, Volvo Group North America

Before drivers get behind the wheel of a Volvo or Mack truck, we have already put in countless hours thinking about how they will use that vehicle. How it handles for them. How we can help keep them safe on the road. How we can contribute to their success, as drivers, business owners, trucking professionals.

Our women engineers bring their unique perspective to their work, asking questions and incorporating that feedback into designing trucks that are comfortable, safe and distinctive. Our women truck builders ensure quality in every bolt and rivet, seeing to it that a truck driving out of our factories is ready to perform. Our female sales reps listen to drivers and business owners, incorporating their needs into the right spec. The women in our aftermarket bring attention to detail and a mindset of always getting better, to keep trucks moving and businesses growing.

From vehicle design to keeping trucks on the road, and every step in between, we're proud of the roles we play. Proud to stand beside the other women in our industry, the pioneers and the next generation who are changing the face of trucking.

The ladies in this photo are proud employees of FedEx Express HTOA Station located in Jamaica, NY. To some this may be a job, but to us this is an amazing career that we enjoy and that we put our heart and souls into every single day. I guess it doesn't help that we look good and feel good doing it too, which allows us to spread some of those good feelings to our customers. Let's face it...all women are created equal, but only the finest become truck drivers!
