6 Common Myths About Women in Trucking January 25 2019

Post by: Carrie Anderson

 

The number of women in the trucking industry is growing, but not as quickly as it should, especially given the current driver shortage. Female truck drivers currently make up about 7% of the industry in the United States, meaning that they are disproportionately underrepresented. At K & J Trucking, we are proud that more than 10% of our drivers are women; but what we want to see the number grow, both in our company and across the industry.

In this piece, we take a moment to focus on the myths about female drivers and why they are so misleading.

Drivers and Their Pets: Meet Aaron and Molly January 2 2019

Post by: K&J Trucking

 

We recently hosted a contest for drivers to submit their cutest furry co-pilot. Our first-place winner, Aaron Hatfield, submitted his sweet dog, Molly. 

Aaron, a K&J professional driver, had been looking for a dog to keep him company in his truck for awhile when his sister, a veterinarian, reached out. 

A young couple had recently dropped off their three-month-old puppy at her office. The puppy was blind and had a broken leg, and the couple was unable to handle the financial burden. 

"It seemed like they'd bit off more than they could chew so they left the puppy with the vet," said Aaron. 

According to Aaron's sister, the puppy was perfect for life in the truck.
