Today, trucking industry has changed significantly since, for many years, driving trucks has been a task exclusively for men. However, more women decide to become professional truck drivers as a way to achieve their goal and demonstrate how skillful and capable they are. Perhaps, it is not common to see females driving big and heavy trucks on the streets, but it is the type of job that makes them feel great. For this reason, they deserve respect and admiration to continue working at an environment where they may be rejected due to prevailing stereotypes.
Although gender equality is difficult to reach in a society, those companies in charge of trucking industry should provide better labor conditions to their employees either women or men. For example, when trucks are well-equipped, drivers will feel more comfortable and pleasant to perform their jobs. A good maintenance of the truck include ventilation, air conditioning, the quality of the ride, visibility, the good functioning of its motor and other parts. The main purpose of regular checking is to make sure that they should not have an accident because of lack of responsibility on the companyÃƒ‚Ã¢€Ã¢„Ãƒ‚¢s side.
Due to the substantial competition in the truck industry, most companies want to expand further and satisfy customer demands. Technological innovations have contributed a lot to make easier the job of truck drivers; however, there is too much work to do because many drivers must be computer literate. Besides, they should receive higher mileage rates and a friendly and fairer treatment. If possible, companies may cover the costs of courses to have knowledgeable people in this field.
