Trinity Logistics, a leading provider of logistics and supply chain solutions, shares earned recognition as a Top Company for Women in Transportation by the Women In Trucking Association for its fifth consecutive year.
The Women In Trucking Association (WIT) is a non-profit organization with the mission to encourage the employment of women in the trucking industry, promote their accomplishments, and minimize obstacles faced by women working in the industry.
Every year, WIT looks for companies with several characteristics that distinguish the companies featured on the list. These characteristics include company cultures that support gender diversity, flexible hours and work requirements, competitive compensation and benefits, training and continued education opportunities, career advancement, and other factors.
“We are honored to be recognized by WIT as a Top Company for Women to Work for in Transportation for a fifth year,” said Megan Morgan, VP of People Operations. “We are committed to creating a workplace where everyone feels welcome, respected, and valued, regardless of their gender. This award is a testament to that, and we are proud to be a workplace where women can thrive.”
Trinity is proud to be a company that’s known for its culture and a place where Team Members can feel valued and supported. Trinity has several initiatives in place to support women in the workplace, including:
To date, Trinity employs over 400 Team Members across seven Regional Service Centers, with 49.5 percent of them women, and 19.6 percent of those women holding a management or leadership role, including our current President, Sarah Ruffcorn. Ruffcorn also serves as co-chair on the Women in Logistics Committee with the Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) and recently received the 2023 Women in Supply Chain Award by Food Logistics and Supply & Demand Chain Executive.
Trinity would like to extend their congratulations to all companies that earned recognition on the list.
“Working for a company like Trinity Logistics has been the best decision I’ve made in my professional career,” said Ashley Lindsey, Director of Sales at the Kansas City Trinity Logistics location. “Several companies talk about having a positive culture, but the Team Members of Trinity LIVE it day in and day out, from the top, all the way to the bottom. Starting out at Trinity in an entry role, there was never a day that I didn’t receive support from our amazing leadership Team and multiple departments when a need arose. They listen, offer feedback, and want to see all Team Members succeed. Seeing the women holding leadership positions is so empowering and pushes me to be the best I can be.”
