XPO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: XPO), a leading provider of freight transportation services, has been named one of the transportation industry’s top companies for women to work for by the Women in Trucking Association (WIT). WIT is a non-profit organization that works to encourage the employment of women in trucking and minimize the obstacles they face. XPO was selected for its commitment to competitive pay and benefits for women, as well as its gender diversity, work-life accommodations, training and professional development.
Josephine Berisha, chief human resources officer for XPO Logistics, said, “This award means a great deal to us, because it reflects our focus on the recruitment and advancement of women in a traditionally male-oriented industry. We’ll continue to open doors for women at all levels of our organization.”
XPO will be recognized at a special awards program during WIT’s Accelerate! 2021 Conference & Expo in November. In addition, the company will be profiled in WIT’s national magazine, Redefining the Road.
