She is Driving
April 25, 2021
The trucking industry offers a lot of opportunity for everybody, Moms included. According to the Women in Trucking website, women make up 10% of over-the-road (OTR) drivers in the transportation business. They also account for at least one in four trucking executives. Women also hold 43.5 % of jobs relating to driver managers, dispatchers, salespeople, and administrative workers. A good resource to see the growing number of women entering the field can be found at: https://www.bls.gov/cps/cpsaat18.htm
For many Moms, making ends meet is no easy task. For those who enter the trucking profession, however, they enjoy more opportunity to make the kind of salary they need to support their families. And the women who work at Millis Transfer, earn top salaries and enjoy fantastic benefits.
And what’s even better is that in trucking, being older is appreciated. Just look at the median age for trucker drivers. For both women and men, it's 46, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In that same report, there are at least 825,000 drivers that are 55 or older. A significant number of drivers are also over the 65-or-older category as well.
