Women In Trucking Announces February Member of the Month
Plover, WI – February 3, 2020 – The Women In Trucking Association (WIT) recognizes a third-generation female truck driver, Jacinda Duran, as its February 2020 Member of the Month.
Duran has been around trucking her entire life. With many family members in the industry, she says it was inevitable that she would be too. Her mother was a professional truck driver for 23 years and often took Duran with her on the job. Her father drove dump trucks and cement trucks. Her grandmother hauled produce in California for over 50 years. Her grandfather did his truck driving in the 1950s. They even have a relative who appeared on the television series, Shipping Wars.
Ten years ago, Duran started her logistics career at FedEx Express as a courier, then transitioned into big rigs in 2014. She has experience driving limos, buses, charter buses and everything in between.
Today, Duran drives enclosed
car carriers for Plycar Transportation, based in Kings Park, N.Y. The company
recruited her after seeing her social media page, Jacinda Lady Truckin. They
recognized that her passion for trucking was a great fit for their elite
trucking team. Through Plycar’s six-week training program, Duran learned to
transport, load and unload unique, one-of-a-kind cars and became the
company’s first solo female driver.
“I stay out on the road for a long period of time, living in my truck. I get to travel the country, seeing friends, making new friends and living the best life out on the road. I am blessed and thank God every day for my health, my life and my blessings,” said Duran.
Duran is a proud mother of two children. Her daughter is in nursing school at Northern Arizona University and her son is a cadet in the US Air Force Academy, obtaining a degree in Aero Engineering.
