Plover, WI – April 30, 2020 – The Women In Trucking Association (WIT) announced today that Expediter Services has renewed its Gold Level Partnership, helping the nonprofit organization elevate the issue of gender diversity in transportation and logistics.
In addition to providing financial support, the company actively participates in the association. Jason Williams, president of Expediter Services, serves on the WIT board of directors. As well as in 2017, WIT teamed up with Expediter Services to launch an innovative program that served as a platform to assist in establishing 150 new women-owned small businesses within transportation.
“We have benefitted tremendously from working with WIT over the last four years,” said Williams. “The insights gained have directly contributed to our company’s ability to service our existing client base as well as grow within our market space. We’ve also had the pleasure of collaborating on projects with Ellen and her team, which has brought access to talent that we wouldn’t otherwise have.”
“We greatly value the partnership we have with Expediter Services,” said Ellen Voie, president and CEO of WIT. “Their commitment to helping women find their path to success in trucking is crucial to advancing the WIT mission.”
Since 2007, WIT has been committed to bringing greater opportunities for women in transportation and helping them succeed. A few recent accomplishments include a record-breaking attendance at the 2019 Accelerate! Conference and Exhibition; an award-winning magazine that explores gender issues in transportation; and a weekly SiriusXM radio show called Women In Trucking that features listener call-ins and interviews with professionals from the trucking industry.
