At MATS: Women In Trucking plan sixth annual 'Salute'

| 2/25/2015

For the sixth straight year, Women In Trucking will honor female truck drivers at a reception on March 28 at the Mid-America Trucking Show.

Marcia Taylor, president and chief executive officer of Bennett International Group, will speak at this year’s event, starting at 11 a.m., Saturday, March 28, in rooms C201-204 in the South Wing of the Kentucky Exposition Center.

Taylor is also the winner of the 2014 “Influential Woman in Trucking” award sponsored by Navistar. She started Bennett along with her late husband, J.D. Garrison, back in 1974, with 15 trucks and 30 trailers, according to the WIT news release. Bennett has grown to include a fleet of 2,500 trucks.

Door prizes will be drawn at this year’s event, including a $1,000 Walmart gift card, 10 Apple iPads, and $100 gift cards for Alliance Truck Parts and a TravelCenters of America Dining gift card.

The “Salute to Women Behind the Wheel” is open to all female commercial drivers, not just members of Women in Trucking – plus family members and friends.
