Women In Trucking Association Names 2020 Top Companies for Women to Work For In Transportation
Plover, WI – Oct. 2, 2020 – Redefining the Road magazine, the official magazine of the Women In Trucking Association (WIT), announced today the recipients of the 2020 “Top Companies for Women to Work For in Transportation”, and Peach State Truck Centers was on the list. According to Ellen Voie, 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 several key features that distinguish companies recognized on this list, said Brian Everett, publisher of Redefining the Road, including corporate cultures that foster gender diversity; competitive compensation and benefits; flexible hours and work requirements; professional development opportunities; and career advancement opportunities.
“This is the third year for this award, which is largely driven by the marketplace,” said Everett. “The sheer number of individuals in the industry who participated in the process underscores the importance practitioners in the industry place on this award.” More than 13,000 votes were cast to identify the 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 virtual WIT Accelerate! Conference & Expo Nov. 12-13.
