Responding to the increasing number of women choosing careers in the industry and to inspire more women to do so, Ryder partnered with Women in Trucking. Women in Trucking encourages the employment of women in the trucking industry, including innovative approaches that improve working conditions for female drivers. Ryder collaborated with the organization and design experts to develop ergonomic truck cab designs that enhance safety while addressing unique challenges women face when operating commercial heavy duty vehicles. Ryder deployed these designs in its owned and leased fleet and helps encourage vehicle manufacturers to consider additional design changes.
