Did you know that women now make up nearly 14% of professional drivers?
This is according to the 2022 WIT Index. This year’s WIT Index also shows that 36.7 percentage of women are in leadership roles (in the C-suite and/or supervisory positions), as well as the percentage of women on boards of directors and in functional roles.

The WIT Index is the official industry barometer to benchmark and measure each year the percentage of women who make up the following roles in transportation:

  • Corporate management (C-suite)
  • Boards of Directors
  • Functional roles (Operations, Technicians, HR/Talent Management, Marketing, etc.)
  • Professional drivers. The WIT Index is a fundamental report that will help to amplify the brand, reputation, and value of the association to the industry and to the North American economy

For-hire trucking companies, private fleets, asset-based third-party logistics companies (3PLs), drayage companies, and other associations report their percentage of professional drivers who are women. These companies along with other market segments in transportation (such as technology innovators, equipment manufacturers, railroads and ocean carriers also report their percentage of leadership and functional roles that are female.
