Austin, Texas – Today, American Trucking Associations' Women in Motion proudly announces a strategic partnership with Trucker Path, a significant stride towards addressing and improving the concerns of women while on the road.
“ATA is committed to bringing more women into our industry and addressing their concerns. This partnership between Women in Motion and Trucker Path is a way to address one of the persistent concerns women in trucking express – safety,” said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. “Helping women drivers identify truck parking facilities with essential amenities like lighted parking, bathroom access and on-site security will play a role in addressing this longtime challenge for our industry.”
Through this new partnership with Women in Motion, Trucker Path will be adding a number of features to its existing mobile app that will help women identify and locate facilities that have seven specific safety features:
- Lighted parking
- Lighted bathroom access
- Lighted lounge areas
- Lighted shower facilities with 24/7 access
- Lighted laundry facilities with 24/7 access
- Round-the-clock maintenance
- Onsite security
Facilities with all seven will be marked with the Women in Motion logo. Drivers will be able to provide updates on the condition of these amenities through the Trucker Path mobile app.
“We are thrilled to introduce this innovative and informative safety feature to our platform, a decision that deeply resonates with our commitment to inclusivity,” said Trucker Path CMO Chris Oliver. “Through our platform, women can quickly and easily identify stops along their routes offering amenities catering to their needs, all while accessing real-time information on parking availability, fuel pricing and discounts, and so much more. Additionally, they can contribute their comments and reviews that serve as a valuable resource for fellow drivers – both women and men. We look forward to our continued growth alongside Women in Motion, as we collectively endeavor to make our industry more inclusive and welcoming for all.”
“Women in Motion and ATA have made increasing access to safe truck parking a primary mission, so helping women find those facilities while on the road is the next logical step in our furthering that mission,” said Women in Motion Co-Chair Sarah Rajtik, ATA executive vice president of human resources and operations. “We’re proud to announce this partnership here and are looking forward to continuing our important work to make the trucking industry safer and more inclusive.”
