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.
