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. Don't forget, women in trucking doesn't just include female truckers. There are plenty of jobs in the trucking industry that women are filling such as dispatching, managing, safety positions, and of course ownership roles. 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.

If you take a number of women as drivers, then I'm sure the % is rising, as far as any other positions that have something to do with trucking bussiness , then I think that # has been big for a long long time.

While I don't know the numbers, the number of women in the trucking industry is growing rapidly.

This souldn't be any surprise, women are very capable of doing the job and doing it very well.
