CPC Logistics, a leading provider of permanent and temporary Class A CDL truck driver and warehouse logistics solutions and services, has been recognized as a 2022 Top Company for Women to Work for in Transportation by the Women In Trucking Association (WIT). The non-profit organization’s mission is to encourage the employment of women in the trucking industry, promote their accomplishments and minimize the obstacles they face.
“With women making up only 14 percent of professional drivers, it is critical to advance gender diversity in transportation and logistics,” said Butch Wallis, CPC president. “We’re proud of this recognition and our ongoing partnership with WIT to continue breaking down the barriers female drivers face as well as celebrating their tremendous contributions to the industry.”
CPC was named to WIT’s list for its commitment to recruiting and retaining female truck drivers. It offers:
- Excellent work-life balance with a variety of local truck driving jobs that allow employees to be home every night.
- Extensive training and awards programs to ensure a safe working environment.
- Comprehensive and competitive benefit packages, which can include a full range of coverages from health and disability insurance to voluntary coverages.
- Opportunities for truck drivers to invest in their career and retirement through a 401(k) plan.
- Health and wellness education, including a dedicated nurse advocate program.
“CPC is leading by example in the transportation and logistics industry’s efforts to recruit and retain more women,” said Linnette Torres, senior manager of recruiting for CPC. “We believe in building relationships, diversity and equal opportunities to earn financial stability, a better quality of life and great benefits. Everyone is valued and treated with respect, and there is always room for growth.”
WIT uses a two-step process to identify companies for this list. First, nominations of each company are reviewed to ensure they meet a minimum threshold of qualifications, including corporate cultures that foster gender diversity; competitive compensation and benefits; flexible hours and work requirements; professional development opportunities; and career advancement opportunities. Then the final ballot of companies is voted on by individuals in the industry. This year, the program garnered more than 22,000 votes to identify the final companies named to the list.
“We were impressed with CPC’s track record of providing support and resources women need to build successful careers in all positions, from professional drivers to members of the leadership and management team,” said Brian Everett, group publisher and editorial director of Redefining the Road, WIT’s official magazine.
CPC will be recognized at the upcoming WIT Accelerate! Conference & Expo November 13-16 in Dallas.
“CPC has been a great company to work for,” said Christie Tilton, a professional driver for CPC. “In an ongoing truck driver shortage, female drivers, who also tend to be safe drivers, could be a huge asset to a company. It’s nice that CPC understands that and is working to attract more.”
