Total Voted a "Top 50 Company for Women In Transportation" Again!

TOTAL Transportation of Mississippi has been voted a Top 50 Company for Women to Work For In Transportation again! We are incredibly proud to be on this respected list for the second year in a row. Redefining the Road, the official magazine of the Women In Trucking Association (WIT), created the award to support WIT’s mission: To encourage the employment of women in the trucking industry, promote their accomplishments, and minimize obstacles faced by women working in the trucking industry. According to Redefining the Road, there are five key features that distinguish companies recognized on this list: corporate cultures that foster gender diversity; competitive compensation and benefits; flexible hours and work requirements; professional development opportunities; and career advancement opportunities. This second annual award “is driven by the marketplace, and the sheer number of individuals in the industry who participated in the process is incredible.” Nearly 150 nominations were received, and more than 10,500 votes were cast to identify the companies named to the list. 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. Over the past 4 years we have made every effort to become a more female friendly company and it shows. 22% of our drivers and 25% of our management are female. Thank you to all of you who voted for TOTAL!
