CONGRATULATIONS NIKKI WEAVER!
2021 DRIVER OF THE YEAR
Every year, Women In Trucking Association (WIT) seeks nominations for the annual Women In Trucking Driver of the Year award sponsored by Walmart. The award recognizes outstanding female professional drivers who lead the industry in safety standards while actively working to enhance the public image of the trucking industry.
Weaver has been a professional driver for over 20 years. For the first seven years of her career, she was an over-the-road driver. Then, she became a company driver with FedEx Freight and has been with the company for 13 years. She now has more than 2 million accident-free miles and zero moving violations.
Since 2019, Weaver has served as an America’s Road Team Captain. She was most recently a finalist for the Luella Bates Award at FedEx Freight and is a two-time winner of the prestigious Bravo Zulu Award, an award created by FedEx Freight founder, Fred Smith. She speaks to community colleges about the trucking industry as well as the Pennsylvania State Police Academy’s new commercial officer cadets. She is an advocate for Truckers Against Trafficking and has attended their leadership conference and is also involved with outreach programs in her community. Her 10-year-old son is proud of her and loves what she does for a living.
