Women in Trucking Partnership

YRC Worldwide is working in partnership with Women in Trucking (WIT), an organization that promotes women's employment in our industry, to expand recruiting programs and to reach out to truck stop owners on interstate highways to encourage more female-friendly environments.

Maggie PetersonI was so excited when I heard about an organization founded to support the goals of women in this industry. Women in Trucking celebrates the achievements of women, addresses issues important to all drivers, and provides a forum for women to network.

I am proud that YRC Freight is a member of WIT, and I am proud we have men who support this organization by becoming members. Together, we can make a difference. Read more.
