PLOVER, WI -- NOVEMBER 21, 2016 -- The Women In Trucking (WIT) Association is pleased to announce the addition of Expediter Services (ES) as a new Gold Level Partner. Expediter Services has a focus driven purpose to help people succeed. They have partnered with WIT to better serve women in expediting with an ever-growing opportunity. They have built a culture that values work ethic and integrity first and believe these values are the key components to success and are not subject to any particular race or gender.
Jason Williams, President of Expediter Services, will serve on the WIT board of directors and participate in the strategic planning session in January. "The opportunity to become a part of the Women In Trucking board of directors is an honor and commitment to an idea that we at ES hold as a core value," Williams said. "Through ES and our network we have created a model that generates opportunity for individuals that have often been over looked within our industry so we focus on the success of the driver and owner-operator, and more specifically women within these groups," he added.
Expediter Services efforts in developing Women in Expediting created a need to partner with Women In Trucking. "After getting to know Ellen and the focus of WIT, it became obvious that there was a natural fit," said Williams. "We are deeply committed to offering our support to Women In Trucking and the organization's efforts to bring greater opportunities to women."
Expediter Services is launching "Success InTrucking" to bring a proven model of success in expediting into the trucking industry at large. Their goal is to offer an attainable and sustainable path to truck ownership for women (and men) across all segments of the industry. "We believe this is an important part of our mission in offering new ownership opportunities in trucking," Williams added.
Recently, Expediter Services interviewed WIT President, Ellen Voie, for their Women in Expediting series. (http://expediterservices.com/women-in-expediting-a-conversation-with-ellen-voie-president-ceo-women-in-trucking).
