Recognizing Your Accomplishments

Female drivers and business professionals are doing amazing things to be part of the economic engine that moves freight over the road. Part of the Women In Trucking Association's mission is to promote their accomplishments.

Each year, the Women In Trucking Association holds events at the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) in Louisville, Kentucky to recognize women drivers in the United States; and in partnership with the Owner-Operator's Business Association of Canada (OBAC) at Truck World in Toronto to recognize women drivers in Canada.
