Women In Trucking Association announces continued partnership with Expediter Services

The Women In Trucking Association (WIT) announced that Expediter Services has renewed its Gold Level Partnership to support the nonprofit organization’s efforts to generate dialogue and action around the importance of gender diversity in transportation and logistics.

Since its inception in 2007, WIT has made significant strides in advancing its mission. A few recent accomplishments include a transportation doll, Clare, that introduces the next generation to the trucking industry, a record-breaking attendance at the 2018 Accelerate! Conference and Exhibition, and the launch of Professional Development Certification (PDC) program to help women (and men) stand out in their careers.

In addition, WIT teamed up with Expediter Services, a leader in capacity solutions and ownership opportunities within the trucking industry, to create a program aimed at developing 150 women-owned businesses, which is nearly halfway to reaching its goal.

“Expediter Services has experienced tremendous benefits from the relationship with Ellen Voie and Women In Trucking Association,” said Jason Williams, co-founder and president, who also serves on the WIT board of directors. “Working with WIT to bring new opportunities into the trucking industry via the 150 Business Challenge has been rewarding both from a business point of view and for me as an individual. With the added support of Panther Premium Logistics, a service of Arc Best and Forward Air, we’re excited about continuing to offer ownership opportunities to women in 2019 and beyond.”

“We are grateful to Expediter Services for their commitment to bringing greater opportunities for women in transportation and addressing obstacles that may keep them from succeeding,” said Ellen Voie, WIT president and CEO. “With their partnership, we can engage more women at every level and continue to make a difference in the industry.”
