Women In Trucking Association Announces Silver Partnership with Old Dominion Freight Line

| February 10, 2021

A career in transportation is one that women should give more consideration

The Women In Trucking Association (WIT) welcomes Old Dominion Freight Line as its newest Silver Level Partner, helping the nonprofit association engage and empower more women in the transportation and logistics industry.

Since joining in 2017, Old Dominion Freight Line has actively participated in the association as a corporate member. Now supporting WIT at the Silver Level, the company is furthering their commitment to diversifying the industry.

“A career in transportation is one that women should give more consideration,” said Dee Dee Cox, vice president of human resources for Old Dominion Freight Line and WIT member. “Trucking is a critical component of the U.S. economy and can provide lifelong career opportunities. At Old Dominion, we champion women in trucking as our history is rooted in female leadership. Our co-founder, Lillian Congdon, remains an inspiration in the industry and is proof that there is opportunity for all.” 

WIT is a resource for over 4,000 corporate and individual members located in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, as well as Japan, Australia, Sweden, South Africa, and New Zealand. Recent accomplishments include the first virtual Accelerate! Conference and Exhibition, unveiling its Driver Ambassador expo trailer that introduces the career of truck driving, and providing driver members with free health support programs during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“There are a wide range of career opportunities within the trucking industry and we strive to highlight the value women can contribute,” said Ellen Voie, WIT president and CEO. “As drivers, women can help address the current capacity crunch. As leaders, studies show, women can significantly impact business success. We are grateful to Old Dominion Freight Line for supporting our efforts to move the industry forward.”
