According to a media release from the Women In Trucking Association, “There are many reasons to recognize female entrepreneurs, which is the reason Redefining the Road magazine launched the “Top Woman-Owned Businesses in Transportation” recognition program in 2017, said Brian Everett, group publisher and editorial director of the magazine. Six years later, WIT continues to recognize successful organizations in transportation that are led or owned by women.”
In order to qualify for the award businesses must have majority ownership by a woman, financial stability and growth, innovation, and entrepreneurial spirit.
