Celebrating International Women’s Day

Diversity and Inclusion, Our People, Shippers

Historically, the trucking industry has been a bit of a man’s world. In the United States, women make up over 57% of the total labor force, but only 47% in trucking. Of those, only 7% are drivers and 23% in all management roles.

Though the divide is shrinking, there’s still a long way to go. And the women on the teams of the U.S. Xpress family of businesses are helping pave the way. Whether in a truck, office, or shop, their diligence and dedication are apparent every day. We’re proud to have so many relentless women on our team and can’t think of a better day to celebrate them.

Happy International Women’s Day to the women at U.S. Xpress, and to the women in other organizations who are paving the way for gender equality in the trucking industry.
