At MATS: 'Salute to Women Behind the Wheel' celebrates five years

| 3/21/2014

At the Women In Trucking fifth anniversary event at the Mid-America Trucking Show next week, the speaker will be Rebecca Brewster, President and COO of the American Transportation Research Institute, who is also the 2013 recipient of the “Influential Woman in Trucking” award sponsored by Navistar.

According to WIT, Brewster will be riding to Louisville from Atlanta as a passenger in tractor-trailers driven by WIT members Stephanie Klang of Con-way Truckload and Monica Abdul-Rashid of Schneider. She will stop at Nashville TA/Petro along the way and have lunch with her drivers before heading to the Mid-America Trucking Show.

In addition to honoring female drivers, Women In Trucking will be announcing its first “Best Recruiting Ad” contest winner. The contest resulted in three finalists – Prime Inc, Republic Services and Walmart – whose ads were chosen as the best by driver consensus. The winner will be announced at the Salute.

The contest is sponsored by Arrow Truck Sales.

The celebration will begin at 11 a.m., Saturday, March 29, in rooms C201-204 in the South Wing of the Kentucky Expo Center.
