GLEN ELLYN — AGT Global Logistics is one of 12 companies named 2020 “Top Woman-Owned Businesses in Transportation” by Redefining the Road magazine, the official magazine of the Women In Trucking Association.
This is the second consecutive year AGT Global received the honor. According to WIT President and CEO Ellen Voie,”(The award) was created to recognize women in leadership and encourage more women to become proactive leaders in their organizations.”
Criteria for the list include majority ownership by a woman, financial stability and growth, innovation, and entrepreneurial spirit. Winners are chosen based on business success and accomplishments — including those related to supporting workplace gender diversity.
Angela Eliacostas, president and founder of AGT Global, said it is “a great honor to be recognized during this difficult time. Transportation is essential and we, at AGT, have adapted services, hours and capabilities to live our motto — We Keep Your World Turning.” she adds, “This is an impressive list of top transportation companies and we are proud to be a part of it.”
Advice: The good thing about trucking and logistics is that once you prove yourself, you’re treated with respect. If you maintain your integrity, if you promise something and you continue to deliver, others start to not pay attention to the fact that you are a woman. ~ Angela Eliacostas
Angela Eliacostas is recognized by Inbound Logistics as one of seven outstanding women in supply chain and logistics. This is an honor coming from such a widely recognized and respected publication.
