Women in Expediting
Women Have Real Opportunity at ES
Did you know that more and more women are entering into trucking in order to access the tremendous opportunities offered by this industry? We want to tell you about an even better choice in the trucking business!
As more and more women enter into transportation, their roles vary depending upon their skill set and business goals. For instance, not all women are drivers or owners. Many gravitate toward other opportunities that support and grow the company business, including recruiting, bookkeeping and freight management, to name a few. It is becoming even more clear that as women move into transportation, their talents are needed and welcomed in the industry.
There is No Better Time to Be in Transportation than Right Now
You are empowered to leverage your skills and build a successful career in a field once dominated by men. The opportunity is real, and you and your skills are needed immediately.
It’s also important to know that ES offers opportunity for anyone looking to enter transportation without regard to gender, race or creed. We provide opportunity and support programs to help you succeed at your level of choice. It’s what we do every day!
