Empowering Female Drivers:
The Essence of Bennett’s Program

Bennett’s Women in the Driver’s Seat Program recognizes the many accomplishments of the women who drive our success. It is comprised of seasoned female drivers across Bennett’s business units who flourish in their own businesses as our fleet owners, independent contractors, and or owner/operators, and have the desire to pay it forward and share their breadth of knowledge and stories.

Woman Driver of Excellence Awards

With more and more women choosing a career in the transportation and logistics industry, we want to recognize those women who chose Bennett and who have made a significant impact on the industry and in their communities.

The Bennett Woman Driver of Excellence Award is presented annually to women drivers who exemplify all drivers, especially Bennett women drivers, in a positive way. The Bennett Woman Driver of Excellence can be a solo driver or a team driver from any of Bennett’s divisions. She is proud of her job and she performs her duties safely and well with her goal to provide Bennett customers with the best quality service.
