Leona Notarpippo

“Leona rarely tells me “No” when I tell her I need help. This is a truly dedicated carrier. If she is on a load, I NEVER worry. She is personally invested in all aspects of the trade. I wish more drivers had her determination to be excellent.”

Get To Know Leona

Are you a member with Women in Trucking?

No.

What are your hobbies?

Running a web-store.

What can Trinity Logistics do to help you succeed?

More brokers need to learn to treat truckers with more respect.

What are your thoughts on gender diversity? What have you done to promote more women in trucking?

My feeling is that if you have a family at home, the trucking industry may not be made for you. It does require a lot of time out on the road. I have been in business for 10 years and now with a family, I just work local runs so there is less time away from home. I think the playing field for a trucker needs to be opened up by increasing pay and that truckers need to be accommodated for the full 24 hours they are actually in a truck.”

What are safety tips you may use in the field?

Carry a flashlight because it provides light, but can also be used as a weapon if need be. Keep your head high and walk with attitude.

What do you like about being a truck driver?

Freedom of being able to do what you want, when you want. She feels you only truly get this as an owner operator.
