CALEDONIA, Ont. — KRTS Transportation Specialists has announced it is helping grow the recently-formed Women in Trucking association by sponsoring the first year of membership for all its female clients enrolled in the full professional A/Z program or dispatch course.
The association, which aims to encourage the employment of women in the trucking industry and break down barriers they face, has been growing steadily in recent months and now boasts 400 members in the US and Canada. It was formed by Ellen Voie of Schneider National.
As Women In Trucking continues to grow, we are amazed at the support we have received from the trucking community both in the US and Canada, said Voie. By adding training facilities to our list of members, we are reaching students who are probably the most vulnerable group in the trucking industry and we want to be here to help them succeed. Kim Richardson and KRTS Transportation Specialists, have been great advocates for our mission since Women In Trucking was formed. We are honoured to be a partner with KRTS.
KRTS announced it was the first Canadian corporate member of the group.
KRTS president Kim Richardson said At KRTS we are always interested in helping to improve the transportation industry. For our new female clients entering the industry, belonging to WIT will give them an opportunity to be part of an association that will help with their success as an industry professional.
