The Women In Trucking (WIT) Association has a new Gold Level partner.
Great Dane Trailers has joined Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems, LLC,
Frito-Lay NA, Hyundai Translead, and Walmart as top supporters of the
nonprofit organization.

“With the addition of Great Dane Trailers, we now have five corporate members that have moved beyond
their membership into a partnership where they have greater influence in the activities of the association,”
said Ellen Voie, WIT’s President/CEO. Great Dane’s support will help us move our mission to bring more
women into the trucking industry at all levels, including trailer manufacturing and sales,” added Voie.
“Challenges for women in the workplace are dynamic, particularly in the trucking
industry,” said Great Dane Vice President of Marketing Brandie Fuller.
“Great Dane is pleased to join Women in Trucking, an organization that positions
itself a catalyst for positive change.”

Fuller will become a member of the WIT board of directors at its annual meeting
later this month. “I am honored to have an opportunity to serve Women
In Trucking Association on the board of directors. I look forward to actively
participating in an organization that supports, advocates, and cultivates selfempowered
professional women,” said Fuller.

Women In Trucking Association has experienced considerable growth in its
five-year existence and represents nearly 1,900 members in the United States,
Canada, England and Australia. Upcoming events include the Third Annual
“Salute to Women Behind the Wheel,” held at the Mid-America Trucking Show
in Louisville, Kentucky this month.

Great Dane, a manufacturer of dry van, refrigerated and platform trailers, has long been regarded as the
industry leader in technology, innovation and quality. The company is headquartered in Chicago, Ill., and
has additional corporate offices in Savannah, Ga., with manufacturing plants and a parts distribution center

strategically-located throughout the United States. Great Dane’s network of company-owned branches
and full-line independent dealers and parts-only independent dealers offer distribution points for both trailers
and aftermarket parts across North and South America. Great Dane can be accessed online at www.

promote their accomplishments and minimize obstacles faced by women working in the trucking industry.
