Women in Transportation

For too long, the transportation industry has been dominated by men. See how women are breaking into the industry, and what ITS is doing to support them.

Stats About Women in the Truck Driving Industry

  • Women make up 7% of the driving population
  • Women make up 23% of management
  • The number of female truck drivers increased by 68% from 2010 (source)

 

Valuable Members of the Transportation Industry

Recent years have seen a growth in the number of women entering the transportation industry, joining as CDL drivers, support staff, and management.

Here at Industrial Transport Systems, we have a team of women who are an essential component of our growth and strong services. One of these valued team members is Kim Quinn, Maintenance Clerk at our Greenville, SC location.
