As we celebrate International Women’s Day, it’s important to acknowledge the women who have paved the way in logistics – a field that has long been seen as an industry dominated by men. However, in recent years, women have been making significant strides in this field, breaking down barriers and achieving great success.
The outdated perceptions of this industry can be a major hurdle to attracting a more diverse range of talent. Highlighting the ample opportunities for growth and progression within the logistics industry is crucial. Logistics roles not only offer career advancement options but also make you a valuable candidate in various careers throughout the supply chain. This means that women who acquire transferable skills in logistics can pivot to other roles such as manufacturing or buying. With logistics being a crucial part of many businesses, learning these skills can open doors to diverse career paths!
As part of our mantra, The Dependall Difference, we’re proud to offer an inclusive, transparent and safe environment for our colleagues. We champion our training, well-being and support initiative for everyone, from the boardroom to warehouse, to allow them to have a happy and prosperous career with us.
Our female co-workers can be found in all corners of our organisation from accounts to operations to warehouse operatives – and on International Womens Day, we’re delighted to celebrate them! Meet just some of the women of Dependall…
A shift is also taking place within HGV Drivers, with more women being drawn to the career path. Long-haul driving now benefits from vehicle tracking, maintenance programmes and secure truck stops making it much safer than it used to be.
It’s also a career that benefits from a work-life balance, competitive salaries and the opportunity to travel. Dependall, provides a secure truck stop with facilities and 24/7 security as part of being a SNAP parking provider, welcoming HGV drivers from all walks of life, safely and comfortably!
So here’s to the women making a difference in logistics by bringing diverse perspectives, innovative ideas, and a strong work ethic to this field. By highlighting their accomplishments and achievements, we hope to inspire other women to pursue careers in logistics and to raise awareness of the need for greater gender diversity and inclusion in the workforce, which benefits both individuals and companies alike!
