Nominations open for National Trucking Industry Woman of the Year

The Australian Trucking Association (ATA) has opened nominations for the 2017 National Trucking Industry Woman of the Year Award.

This award, sponsored by Cummins South Pacific, aims to recognise a strong professional or personal contribution made by a woman within the Australian trucking industry.

“The contribution of women to the trucking industry is vast. We work as drivers, schedulers, mechanics managers and business directors. We keep the wheels rolling,” said ATA Chair, Noelene Watson.

“The ATA welcomes the support of Cummins South Pacific in sponsoring this award and doing so much to support equality and celebrate women’s achievements."

“All Cummins employees – men and women – deserve equal opportunities to succeed in the workplace," said Manager of Automotive Sales and Customer Support, Scott Alexander, Cummins South Pacific.

“This emphasis on equality is at the heart of Cummins’ values and was the driving force behind the company’s Women’s Leadership Conference and Cummins’ longstanding support of the National Trucking Industry Woman of the Year award.”

The National Trucking Industry Woman of the Year award will be presented at Trucking Australia 2017, held from 21 – 23 June in Darwin.

The winner will receive a weeklong travel package for herself and partner to visit the Cummins factory in the United States. The package will include return airfares, accommodation, transfers and meals.

The winner will also be invited to attend the ATA Foundation Sponsors Gala Dinner at Trucking Australia 2018.

Nominations can be made on the ATA website.
