At Carter, being an inclusive employer is one of our top priorities. We strongly believe that women belong in the driver’s seat and we’re proud of the fact that our company has over three times as many women truck drivers as the national average and many of our driver trainers are women. This is why we are so excited to share with you that we were named one of the Top Companies for Women to Work for in Transportation in 2020 by Women In Trucking.

The WIT award is one of the highest recognitions a carrier can receive for their ability to create a company culture that supports gender diversity, career advancement and professional development opportunities, the flexibility to accommodate work-life balance, and competitive pay and benefits. Every company in the running needs to be nominated, indicating what makes it a good place for women to work, before being selected for the award by Redefining the Road, the official magazine of the Women In Trucking Association.

“This is a great place to work because they take care of their employees,” reads a section of our nomination. “Carter will quickly identify skills each employee brings, provide the proper training to promote within; eventually into leadership roles.”

We are incredibly honored to receive this recognition as a Top Company for Women to Work for in Transportation. This is a true testament of our team’s hard work and their dedication to making Carter a place where women can thrive in their careers.

At Carter, we proudly lead the industry in compensation and benefits. Our solo drivers earn an average of $70,000 a year and teams earn up to $97,000 yearly; we also have guaranteed base mileage pay, dedicated routes and benefits that include vacation/holiday pay and insurance. Not to mention a low turnover rate that’s 60% less than the industry average.
