Barner has over 25 years of industry experience and has had the opportunity to learn from and help multiple clients’ operations, which are a good representation of some of the top private fleets in the country.
Since 2007, the Women In Trucking Association has been focused on addressing these challenges, including driver shortages, logistical changes, and asset management hurdles, that continue to impact women working in the trucking industry. The association continues to build a strong community among its members (primarily women in the transportation and logistics industry) who work behind-the-scenes to help deliver goods safely and efficiently.
Fleet Advantage is a strong example of working behind-the-scenes to help women in the trucking industry identify professional growth potential, while helping fleet organizations overcome their existing operational and equipment finance challenges. Whether it’s new driver and truck shortages, procurement strategies, residual values or achieving Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals, the company’s certified truck professionals help identify and adopt new processes to ensure long-term success.
“It’s important to provide more opportunities for women in the trucking industry to not only create a more diverse environment, but give them the resources, tools and strategies they can utilize to address company-specific and industry-wide issues impacting operations,” said Katerina Jones, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, Fleet Advantage. “Our team looks forward to welcoming attendees to our booth to complete our industry-wide benchmarking survey for a chance to win a brand-new iPad.”
