Statistically, long-haul trucking is largely the province of men. Sex notwithstanding, when you contemplate the prototypical trucker, you likely imagine a rugged individual capable of a solo existence living the storied “trucker lifestyle.” For men, life behind the wheel can be hard; for women, it’s even tougher. According to the American Trucking Association, in 2017, women made up 6.2% of all long-haul truck drivers, a number that was up from just 4.9% in 2008. Often traveling thousands of miles from home for weeks at a time, female drivers must contend with participating in the trucking industry as a vast minority, where sexism, harassment, privacy and personal safety are genuine concerns. Indeed, the fact that women make up such a small percentage of the long-haul work force creates challenges not only for the drivers themselves, but for the trucking companies as well. With the industry constantly seeking to expand its work force, including hiring more female drivers, how trucking companies develop and implement policies to ensure women are provided a safe and productive work environment is critical to long term success. Click here to continue reading.
