Dallas, TX (Oct. 2, 2019) — Redefining the Road magazine, the official magazine of the Women In Trucking Association (WIT), announces the recipients of the 2019 “Top Companies for Women to Work For in Transportation.” According to Ellen Voie, president and CEO of WIT, the magazine created the award in 2018 to support part of WIT’s mission to promote the accomplishments of companies that are focused on the employment of women in the trucking industry.
“We are thrilled to be recognized as one of the top companies for women to work. We are huge advocate for women in trucking and the Women in Trucking Association. We are honored to be held in such high regard. Logistic Dynamics has always valued trust, transparency and teamwork.”

According to Brian Everett, publisher of Redefining the Road, there are several key features that distinguish companies recognized on this list, including: corporate cultures that foster gender diversity; competitive compensation and benefits; flexible hours and work requirements; professional development opportunities; and career advancement opportunities.
“The second year in existence, this award is driven by the marketplace, and the sheer number of individuals in the industry who participated in the process is incredible,” said Everett. More than 150 nominations were received, and nearly 11,000 votes were cast to identify the companies named to the list, according to Everett.
The list is comprised of a diverse range of business sectors in the commercial freight transportation marketplace, including motor carriers, third-party logistics companies, and original equipment manufacturers. Companies on the list were recognized at a special program in Dallas at the Accelerate! Conference & Expo, which is hosted by WIT this week.
“We’re honored to be recognized by WIT. LDI is a considerate and inclusive environment for everyone, and it’s wonderful to be recognized for that by an outstanding organization such as Women in Trucking.”
