Someone on this forum quoted that the number of women in trucking is upwards of about 6% as of 3 years ago. I suspect it is certainly higher than that now.

In what is without a doubt a historically male-dominated industry, women offer a different perspective and methodology regarding problem solving and the like, which has proven to be most successful.
