Women in Trucking
We, at Arfsten Transfer, have recently joined “Women in Trucking”.  This is an organization to promote and support women in the trucking industry.  There is a stereotype that women are not truckers.  I am telling you, there is nothing further from the truth.  There are several trucking companies, freight brokers, truck dealers and front-line vendors with women in the top positions.  Our lives, personal, professional, spiritual, physical and health are guided by the women in our lives are not only important, but essential in the trucking industry.  In our little organization we have women in essential roles managing the office, doing the billing, working in H/R and operations.  We have had some women “over the road” drivers and had very good experience with them.  Women are safe, on time, follow instructions, get good fuel mileage, put on miles, provide customer service, take care of my equipment as good or better than many of their male counter parts.  Here at Arfsten Transfer we are making an effort to make this a safe comfortable place of all the women in our organization and especially any women drivers that consider working for us.  We have modern clean equipment, will provide a membership to WIT, allow a pet to travel in the truck, provide personal protection devise in the truck and get you home on weekends.  See the country and earn $50 to $80,000 a year.  *SEE LINK ON THE LEFT

Trucking Careers ~ Good Jobs

 The trucking industry, like so many others, is reeling with a shortage of personnel. The US economy relies on quality transportation to move goods in and out of manufacturing facilities, energy distribution, food distribution and people movement. If trucking fails the US economy fails, people lose jobs and food is not available.

  When I was growing up my father wore a cap that looked like a policeman’s hat and he proudly displayed his “Chauffeur’s Badge” on the front of it. Truck drivers were the princes of the road. Many were former service men from WW II with a deep commitment to God, family and country. They were considered professionals and paid well.

  Today’s drivers are still the most professional drivers on the road. They constantly receive training, must pass medical qualifications and be drug free. These heroes manage not only the road and the truck, but the customers they serve, stay in DOT compliance with one of the most regulated industries in the country, manage the hours they work, drive through snow, wind, rain storms, tornadoes and road construction to get the groceries to your store, the material to your factory so they can open on Monday morning and each morning.

  If you are considering a new career, consider the trucking industry. We have good jobs. Today’s drivers earn between $60K and 90K a year and salaries are rising. These are good jobs. Technicians are also in high demand. Careers with for hire and private fleets as office support, maintenance and operations are all rewarding. Modern technology is constantly being introduced. You don’t need a

4 year college degree or $60,000 student loan. You do need to work hard and commit to learning and perfecting a craft. These are good jobs! Women and veterans have the right stuff to succeed and make great drivers and employees.
