We are honored to welcome US Foods as a supporting sponsor of the “Women Truckers Network” a feature of the “Real Women Truckers” on Facebook and the “REAL Women in Trucking” blog.
The lack of internal female mentoring and network opportunities is a contributor to the loss of qualified Women in many vocations.
Technology has enabled working veteran female truck drivers to mentor Women entering trucking through our weekly phone conferences. The Women Truckers Network social media presence provides virtual mentors that assist as an information gathering tool for CDL driving jobs and services offered by companies that value qualified candidates.Our mission is to help Women entering trucking make better safer choices about the carriers they choose to work for so that they may have longevity in the industry.

They currently have driver positions available across their national footprint of 64 locations.
