Two years ago, Ryder System along with the help of several OEMs and the Women in Trucking Association, a non-profit organization that encourages the employment of women in the trucking industry, came up with the idea of a custom vehicle design to better meet the needs of female drivers. This design included 15 unique specs that would be better suited to women -- as well as some men. Two years ago this was big news. And, in our opinion, it still is. We encourage fleet owners and managers at every opportunity to take advantage of Ryder’s female-friendly vehicle lease packages, if they haven’t already.
