Happy International Women’s Day 2022!

Emily Woolford, 8th March 2022

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. IWD is being celebrated on 8th March this year and the theme is #BreakTheBias

During the First World War, 100,000 women entered the transport industry when women had to take on the roles previously held by men, who were enlisted into the military. This kick-started women being recognised and given opportunities in roles that were previously only reserved for men.

The transport and logistics industry is one of the biggest in the UK, with over 1 million employees. In 2022, women make up 20% of the industry’s workforce and 1% of all UK truck drivers are women.

Despite only making up 20% of the industry’s workforce, numerous studies have highlighted the positive impact of women on the performance of the industry. Here are 5 of the most powerful women identified in the logistics and transport industry.

There are a number of associations that have been set up to guide, connect and support women in the transport industry. Two of the key associations are Women in Transport and the CILT Women in Transport and Logistics, both of which are linked below.
