The trucking and transportation industry has historically been male dominated. But with an increasing demand for new truck drivers, more and more female drivers are joining the industry.
Whether you’re looking to recruit new talent for your trucking business or are just starting out, don’t overlook the female truckers as they become increasingly vital to the industry.
There has never been a better time to become a truck driver. Many trucking companies are offering lucrative sign-on bonuses of up to $10,000 for new drivers.
Basic qualifications needed for this well-paying field:
If you opt to become an owner-operator truck driver, you can make between $100,000-$200,000+.
Here are a few ways to overcome the unique challenges of being a female trucker.
Befriend other female truck drivers and build your network. The Women in Trucking Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization that supports ambitious students, drivers, and professionals in the trucking industry who seek to grow their skills through classroom and vocational training. Another resource is the Women in Trucking Association whose mission is to encourage the employment of women in the trucking industry, promote their accomplishments and minimize obstacles faced by women working in the trucking industry.
Always stay alert and aware of your surroundings. It’s best to plan your stops before you embark on your journey so that you can hit the road with confidence. If it gives you peace of mind, carry mace and install a dashcam.
In such a heavily male-dominated industry, women truckers may encounter sexism from their male counterparts. Educate yourself on your rights and choose a company that has a culture of supporting women.
