ARLINGTON, Va. – Oct. 30, 2023 Redefining the Road  magazine, the official magazine of the Women In Trucking Association (WIT), announced today the recipients of the 2023 “Top Companies for Women to Work For in Transportation.” According to Jennifer Hedrick, 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. 
There are a number of characteristics that distinguish the 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. Qualified companies also must meet minimum requirements of what they report through the WIT Index, the industry barometer that benchmarks and measures each year the percentage of women who make up critical roles in transportation.  
“Companies named to this prestigious list must demonstrate corporate attributes that are essential to any successful enterprise committed to gender diversity as part of their corporate strategy,” said Everett. “Qualifying companies to this list entails a two-step process. First, nominations by companies are carefully reviewed to ensure they meet a minimum threshold of qualifications. Then the final ballot of companies is voted on by individuals in the industry. This is the sixth year of this prestigious recognition program and it garnered a record number of more than 27,000 votes to identify and validate 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. 5-8 in Dallas, Texas. Navistar is the sponsor of this year’s program.
