Women in Trucking






"We want to help women coming into the industry...The equipment is
just one part of it."

As part of our Women in Fleet series, we spoke with Ellen Voie, President and CEO of Women in Trucking Association, a nonprofit organization that encourages the employment of women in the trucking industry, promotes their accomplishments, and minimizes obstacles faced by women working in the trucking industry.

Voie founded Women in Trucking in 2007, and is a trucking industry veteran. She has written extensively about trucking and family issues, and authored two books, "Crushing Cones. What you should know before attending truck driving school" and "Marriage in the Long Run." In July, 2012, she was honored by the White House as a Transportation Innovators Champion of Change.

Women in Trucking represents all areas of the trucking industry: carriers, suppliers, individual professionals, and drivers. And they count some heavy hitters among their partners, including Frito-Lay and Walmart Transportation.

While up in Toba Inlet during teaching an Air Brake Course I had some time to tour the Toba Montrose Electric Project.

You really get a sense of British Columbia's rugged and amazing coast line. Am experience every one should take to get respect of the beautiful country we live in.

If you can do the job, you deserve the job, no matter what your gender.

We're starting to see more and more female truckers 'in the driver's seat' of big trucks.


It's certainly about time that the industry recognize that if a woman can do the work, she most certainly deserves the job.


Driving a big rig isn't a 'man's job'. It's a JOB, period....doesn't matter it's team driving, flatbed trucking, jobs, or liquid hauling, if a gal can do what's required in the job description, she should be eligible for the work.
