Trinity Logistics, a leading third-party logistics (3PL) company, is proud to announce its earned recognition as a Top Company for Women in Transportation by the Women In Trucking Association for a fourth 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.
“Trinity Logistics is a company that truly supports your growth and acceleration no matter your gender, race, or anything else,” said Amanda Ashford, Product Analyst. “Your value as a Team Member is based upon the work and effort you put in and your willingness to participate in the company’s collaborative culture. My past experiences have shown me that the grass is truly greener at Trinity Logistics.”
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 Team Members are offered flexibility in hours and work requirements, quality benefits for themselves and their families, many continued education opportunities to help support career growth, competitive compensation, opportunities to serve their communities through the company’s employee-run non-profit, and a company culture that is positive and family-friendly.
“It is such an honor to be recognized by Women In Trucking,” said Jennifer Braun, VP of Kansas City Regional Service Center. “This recognition speaks to Trinity being a great place to work, regardless of gender. Trinity builds a strong culture through focus on continuous improvement. With countless resources, training, leadership development, and mentoring programs, Team Members are empowered to realize their full potential. It’s rewarding to see women flourish at Trinity and to be a part of such a worthy organization such as Women In Trucking.”
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).
Trinity would like to extend their congratulations to all companies that earned recognition on the list.
“Anyone can be a part of the logistics industry and part of improving the lives of those around us,” said Sarah Ruffcorn. “It really comes down to bringing more awareness to the logistics industry as a potential career path and making it easier to get creative, driven, and talented people started. Then, it is up to us to provide opportunities for them to grow to their full potential and be a place that people want to be a part of. The more we can do that, the more driven, creative, and dynamic people we can attract to logistics!”
